Kathy Martin is our Program Coordinator for the Community Based Program. Every time a child walks out of the BBBS office, excited to have their first outing with their new Big Brother or Big Sister, we always hear her say “I love my job!” Being a bridge that connects children with a healthy role model is more of a passion than a job for Kathy. She first came out to Montana in 1998 to work as a summer camp counselor after her junior year of college for Camp of the Turtle and fell in love with the area. For the past 16 years, since receiving her Bachelors Degree in Theology from Saint Louis University with a minor in Elementary Education, she has been working in the field of social services for organizations such as Sisters of the Road in Portland, Oregon, The Montana Youth Conservation Corps, Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, and here at Big Brothers Big Sisters. She is the mother of two active boys and enjoys reading, hiking and horseback riding.

When she decided to go back to school, she moved to the Seattle area where she attended Bastyr University and received a Master of Arts degree in counseling, eventually becoming a licensed counselor. During that time she also worked in the field of conflict resolution as program staff, mediator and trainer for the Bellevue Neighborhood and Parent-Teen Mediation Programs. After returning to Montana, she joined the staff at BBBS. Gwen currently works part-time for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and is also a part-time Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in private practice.
