Owner and President of Caring Transitions of Waukesha County. After 30+ years in the field of Information Technology, she felt compelled to find a different path in life.
Kathy opened Caring Transitions of Waukesha County eight years ago after seeing many families struggle through some of the most difficult transitions in life. The need to downsize, pack, coordinate a move to a new home, unpack and then liquidate the contents of a home is incredibly stressful.
Kathy and her team take great pleasure in helping people with space planning, packing/unpacking, and managing the move into the next right location for their needs in life. They liquidate the remaining items through both online and on-site estate sales, maximizing returns for their clients.
They are always striving to help seniors and their families move forward with the next step in their lives, and Caring Transitions provides them with the ability to help many people through those difficult times.
