  • We are sorry that it has taken so long to send you this much deserved thank you for your participation in our February Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar.  As with your previous lecture, your presentation this time was very well received.  You provided us with specific and valuable information that helps us better understand the mission and capabilities of the Department of Corrections, which in turn helps us to do our jobs more effectively, and, when appropriate, more compassionately.  You have a wonderful ability to keep everyone in the room fully engaged and manage to make accessible many of the places, concepts and ideas that we prosecutors find opaque and foreign.”Laurie A.

  • Kathy is one of the best and brightest persons that I have had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely insightful and able to see the big picture; specifically with regard to inmate programming and re-entry. Kathy was the go-to person in our department for all programming and re-entry related issues and a personal resource to me while we worked together in our Central Office.David Wakefield

  • Kathy’s knowledge of the inner workings of the criminal justice system coupled with her innovative thinking really helped us take an already effective program to the next level.  Kathy helped us develop working partnerships with the leadership of the Department of Corrections as well as wardens across the state so that we could visit inmates, help them understand the benefits of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring and work to find mentors for their children.  We could have never have started a statewide program without Kathy’s assistance  and there are literally thousands of children who are better off as a result.Marlene Olshan, Chief Executive Officer
