About Kathy

Kathy manages Dr. Mona's complicated schedule, plans departmental and division-wide events, makes travel and conference arrangements, and manages all tasks administrative in nature for the Dean of Students office.

She has worked at Stanford since 2008 both as a Research Administrator and IT support for the School of Medicine.  Prior to that she worked at a private pre-K-5 private school in Menlo Park where she wore many hats over the 18 years she worked there.  She started as Admin. Assistant to the Head of School and moved on to work in the Business, Development, and Admissions offices. Kathy also migrated the manual accounting system to a fully computerized model within the Business office.

During her last eight years there, she worked closely with the Technology Director doing everything from upgrading and maintaining hardware, instructing teachers on how to use software to maintaining the wired and wireless network.  She was instrumental in developing a Student Information System which recorded attendance, grades, and all the information required to automatically generate report cards.

Along with her husband and daughter, Kathy was the first member of her family to immigrate to the U.S. from South Africa in 1983.  In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, gardening, sewing, knitting, doing puzzles, and most of all, spending time with her family.
