Facts about Kathy Dee
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY
During the summers from the ages of 8 to 11, I studied anthropology and archeology with Dr. Ethel Alpenfels. I generally attended a lecture beforehand and then went on site to such places as Machu Picchu, Chichen Itza, and the burial mounds and culture in Scandinavia and Europe.
I worked for 16 years in the Entertainment Industry as a Master Theatrical Electrician, Lighting Designer and Wardrobe Supervisor. As a Wardrobe Supervisor and Dresser I was on staff at a major network, worked on Broadway as well as feature films. As a wardrobe supervisor I also worked with the original Saturday Night Live cast.
I worked for 20 years as the founding Executive Director of PASA: People Against Sexual Abuse, Inc., which later became Positive Attitudes, Solutions and Actions. I designed and field tested the programs which had a focus on cultivating young people’s leadership abilities, along with personal and community development. Generally we focused on violence prevention and peace making.
I have been a pioneer and innovator for as long as I can remember.
I currently live in the Pacific North West where it rains a lot.

Stories I Tell About Myself
I’ve been examining the stories I tell about myself for some time. Some stories are useful and others not so helpful. Mostly they are not helpful because they limit my possibilities. If you are interested in rewriting your stories, I find a good way to start is by asking people to reflect what they see and experience about you.
As I was putting together this “About” section, I used this technique. A major story I have told about myself is that “no one ever listens to me.” What I discovered when people told me what they saw was that I have to stop telling the no one listens to me story because clearly it’s no longer true. The comments in this section confirm that people do listen and act on what I say. THANKS to all who contributed!
