Kathryn Fox grew up in San Diego, California, and attended UC Berkeley where she earned a degree in Social Sciences/Mass Media. She worked as a radio journalist at NPR in Washington and Los Angeles. The major stories she produced included the election of Pope Benedict XVI from Vatican City, the Second Inauguration of President George W. Bush from Washington, D.C., and the Funeral of President Ronald Reagan from Simi Valley, CA. While at NPR she was part of a newsroom that was awarded the Peabody Award for coverage of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
After 15 years with NPR, and a move to Virginia, Kathryn made a shift in careers to better balance her time home with her twin daughters. During her free time, she enjoys volunteering at the school her daughters attend, volunteering on the board of her community pool, and spending quality time with her family.
