Kathy Fowler, CEO

Kathy Fowler, MA, LPC, was named Executive Director of Good Shepherd on December 1, 2020. The board of directors conducted a nation-wide search before selecting Fowler due to her deep knowledge of the agency and clinical expertise.

Fowler began her career with Good Shepherd in 2005 as a case manager and therapist before rising to a senior leadership role. She briefly left to share her skills with another nonprofit before returning to what she says “feels like home.”

She will lead the strategic vision of the agency and oversee day-to-day operations.
