After returning to the U.S., Kathy got a Master's Degree in Applied Anthropology and a BA in Political Science.  She worked as an American Indian Art Educator in Washington D.C.; in American Indian Policy with Congressional Research Service; with Indian Head Start; and served as a Commissioner on Indian Affairs for the State of Maryland.  She also taught Cultural Anthropology in colleges in Maryland.  She is a Wilson Scholar, a Truman Scholar, an American Association of University Women Scholar and a Director’s Scholar.
