Kathy is always ready and willing to be a personal shopper for teachers as they call or email from here in our region or across the country. Her knowledge of print materials in our catalog as well as additional materials from other print vendors is vast, perhaps she was a librarian in another life. She also draws upon her career in the public schools as well, teaching for 18 years before coming to West Music, when she taught using Orff instruments, guitars, and percussion.
Kathy was responsible for 95 of the 200 pages of the West Music Catalog this past year as well as in previous years, that's a lot of Navision codes and proofing! She always finds the best of what our vendors have to offer for our elementary music education teachers. She travels to multiple events throughout the school year too, whether it's a Saturday event, summer workshop or state music education convention, Kathy is ready and willing to head out to meet our customers face to face wherever they are!
Kathy is someone I always aspire to be more like. Thanks for your extraordinary effort, Kathy!
