Kathy began her career in the insurance industry in 1982 when working as an insurance billing clerk for a durable medical equipment company. She then spent five years as a claims examiner and customer service representative for Blue Cross Blue Shield of KY. In 1989, she moved on to a management and consulting firm which developed HMOs and PPOs; this firm was also a licensed Third-Party Administrator servicing self-funded health plans. Kathy settled comfortably into sales after years of product development, claims processing, and customer service; skills and knowledge she acquired which she continues to draw-on today. Kathy attended Mayo State Vocational-Technical School where she studied Data Processing and later attended the Lexington Community College Business Administration Program. She went on to obtain her Life, Accident, and Health License in 1996 and Property & Casualty License in 2007. For the past ten years she was the sole proprietor of Capital Insurance Solutions, LLC (CIS), an independent insurance agency representing clients in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Georgia, which has now merged with Theodore & Associates. Kathy enjoys helping clients select the insurance products best suited for them and takes each client’s needs as personally as if they were her own. In her free time, Kathy enjoys traveling, reading books of a variety of genres, cheering on the University of Kentucky basketball team, spending time with family and friends, and supporting the Oliver Gospel Mission.
