Kathy Ellington            Program Coordinator

Kathy has extensive experience in community nonprofit management – particularly in the areas of administration, programming, and consulting.

After meeting her husband in Rome, Italy, Kathy fell in love with the gypsy lifestyle and lived in California, Virginia, Montana, and Texas before ultimately returning to her hometown of Ruston.

She has 3 adult children, 2 exceptionally artistic grandchildren, and one dog who could not care less about art. Kathy, however, is extremely excited to be a part of NCLAC.
