Kathy Van Pelt
Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been a Floridan
for over 40 years. My business career included the development, installation and support of an electronic document management system – one of our clients was Merck Pharmaceuticals. I began my breast cancer journey in 2015. I prefer to denote myself as a “breast cancer graduate” – this has been a schooling, ups and downs, but surviving with an advanced degree in knowledge. My hope is that in some way I can help to guide others through this journey — walk, run, stumble and get up – with a smile and the strength we all possess. Driven by Heart provides that support for the “gals” and I am very happy to be part of this organization, working with some truly amazing women.
My other titles include wife, mother, daughter, sister and Omie (grandmother).
