The Rotary Club of Marco Island Noontime welcomes its newest member, Kathryn Pasternak. Kathy was born and raised in New York, attended high school at Marymount in Manhattan, received her B.A. from Sweet Briar College, and had the opportunity to study Spanish abroad in Madrid. She then earned an M.A. in Spanish at the University of Virginia and a J.D. at Pace University School of Law.
Kathy was admitted to the Bar in CT and NY where she practiced law primarily related to real estate and land use making her next career a logical choice. Kathy is a real estate broker in CT, NY and FL affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices/Florida Realty on Marco Island.
Kathy was a 35-year resident of New Canaan, CT. She is married to Dana and has three children, a daughter-in-law, three grandchildren, and Chloe, an almost 16-year-old beagle!
Volunteer activities have been Kathy’s passion during her 35–year residence in CT primarily related to children and the elderly including: Board and Committee positions for New Canaan Public Schools, Mentor to three high school girls through a program which supports disadvantaged youth, Board of an organization which provides transportation for the elderly and disabled, Board of an organization which supports seniors so they can stay in their homes longer, Board of a Continuum of Care to address the changing needs of seniors, and Advisory committees of two community wellness organizations.
We are now happy to welcome Kathy as a full-time resident of Marco Island. She is excited to jump headlong into volunteer work here on and we are thrilled that she has chosen Rotary as her venue for service. Kathy truly exemplifies the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”
