She has continued her education over the years, crossing over from education to healthcare, gaining certificates in the Sacred Art of Dying, Spiritual Direction, Reflexology, and is an Advanced Reiki Practicioner. Since 2006, Sister Kathy has served as the Chaplain at Stella Maris Hospice in Baltimore County, providing spiritual guidance and comfort to the dying and their families. She remains involved at The Catholic High School of Baltimore as a member of the Board of Trustees and serves on the Mission and Ministry committee, and was awarded the Franciscan Heritage Award for her spirit of service this past fall at the Alumnae Awards Ceremony.
