Kathleen Hoover


Kathleen grew up in Atlanta, GA and attended the University of Georgia where she studied Human Development and Family Science (Go Dawgs!). During her time in college, the campus staff and community at RUF showed her the love and tender care of Jesus, and how He hears and knows all of our burdens and hardships. She is always down to play a game of frisbee, pickleball, or volleyball and she loves going on outdoors adventures with friends! She is passionate about the joy of tea time and getting to have sweet conversations with friends (please ask her about her favorite books and why everyone should watch Avatar: The Last Airbender). She is so excited to get to live in Burlington and get to know the students there, so please reach out to her if you need anything. And Go Catamounts!
