Kathy Whitaker joined the S.A. Lifeline Foundation in 2009, bringing her passion for service and healthcare to the organization. Throughout her tenure with the SA Lifeline Foundation, Kathy has integrated principles of healthy living into her life and extended family, profoundly impacting those around her. Her dedication to service and commitment to promoting well-being have left an indelible mark on the community she serves.

Raised in Southern California, she is the eldest among three siblings. Kathy pursued her education at Ricks College (now BYUI), graduating with an AA in Nursing. Her journey led her to marry Brad Whitaker, with whom she shares the joy of raising five children and welcoming 19 grandchildren into their lives.

For over 20 years, Kathy balanced her role as a Labor and Delivery nurse with the demands of raising her family across Utah, Colorado, and California. Upon settling in Utah when her youngest child entered High School, Kathy found solace in the proximity to nature, finding daily renewal in the splendor of God’s creations.
