Who We Are

Kathleen Kostandin (’07) joined the Foundation in the summer of 2018 as the part-time development assistant in addition to her full-time position elsewhere.  She had been a very active and appreciated volunteer with the Foundation before taking on this additional role.  Kathleen attended the University of Delaware after graduating from MLWGS.  She and her husband are looking forward to welcoming their first child this winter.
