The heart of a volunteer is something special! That rings especially true with Kathy Aderhold. Kathy began her volunteer work here at the American Lung Association in Colorado in April of 2013. Since that time, Kathy has dedicated nearly 500 hours to helping out ALAC.
Kathy began her career at Honeywell doing factory work. She decided she wanted to advance her career. She started school, and soon after began doing data entry. That’s when she met Jack and they’ve been together ever since (31 wonderful years).
After 16 years at Honeywell, she moved on to working for the Gates Corporation. Kathy continued to do administrative work there for 14 years.
Not one to sit still, she began volunteering at the Denver Animal Shelter after her time at the Gates Corporation. Kathy loves animals, but wanted to do more. After doing an online search for volunteer opportunities, she discovered the chance to volunteer at the American Lung Association. Kathy grew up watching her parents smoke and knew the struggles that were associated with smoking and quitting. She was thrilled to volunteer for an organization that stood against smoking and helped people to quit.
She has no plans to quit volunteering anytime soon, and for that we are thankful. Kathy has been a blessing to the office and her time and efforts are greatly appreciated!
