Meet the Photographer

Kathleen Pierz recently retired after a career spent in International Strategic Planning.  She has lived and worked in countries around the world and always had a deep interest in culture and languages.  She spends her free time “sauntering”, to paraphrase John Muir, and loves to travel.  Part of the joy of all this wandering is to capture photos that tell the story of that place and that moment in time.  She is fascinated by the detail of places as well as the flora and fauna she finds along the way.  Now that she is retired, she takes over 15,000 photos a year, documenting the world around her.

Kathleen is the president of the Rotary Club of Brighton, Colorado, USA, A Paul Harris Fellow, a published author, and a ShelterBox Ambassador.  She has three grown children and a sweet dog she recently adopted from the Ute Reservation.  In addition to photography, she almost always has a home improvement project going, and is currently finishing the build out on her second camper van. One of the great joys of this kind of travel is visiting friends and family along the way and sort of making up the itinerary as you go along.  She also enjoys cooking, sewing and painting and hopes to find a ceramics studio nearby.    As soon as the pandemic is under control, she plans to hit the road again with her cameras in hand, her dog on a leash and some well-worn hiking boots on her feet.
