Kathy joined Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council (LMEC) in 2007, making her the third Executive Director of the organization in its 35-year history. In her role with the LMEC, Kathy coordinates and participates in all of the lake and watershed projects for the Council, including working with the USGS on a two-year project to sample the lakebed for research purposes. She also manages the LMEC office, handling all social media, writing and producing the organization’s quarterly newsletters and all its marketing materials. Having accomplished all of the goals in their 2006 watershed management plan, Kathy and the LMEC board are now working to revise the plan to direct their efforts going forward. Kathy is very proud of Lake Maxinkuckee and the LMEC, which she considers a truly hands-on environmental group working to protect this important Indiana water resource.
