She has traveled throughout Europe, Thailand, India and the US enjoying musical festivals and special events with her husband, David Ferré.

While living on Bainbridge Island, WA, Kathy was a member of the Bainbridge Island Arts & Humanities Council, focusing on the commissioning of outdoor sculptures and children’s art projects.

While in Seattle she produced an hour radio show called the Elliott Bay Writers Series that aired on KCMU public radio at the University of Washington on Sunday mornings. The show featured writers who came to the Elliott Bay Bookstore. She also found time for the Richard Hugo House in Seattle an organization that provides support, advice and a variety of programs for writers and the local community. She currently is working on her own writing projects, including poetry and travel essays.
