Hello! I’m Kathryn Adams, a Nurse Freelance Writer who started my career as a Firefighter EMT-B, then RN, and transitioned to professional writing. I grew up volunteering with my mom as a Girl Scout at a local food kitchen for the homeless. This childhood experience initiated a Iife commitment to noticing inequities around me, and the desire to contribute to the best solutions. I started volunteering with IFCS in 2018, choosing this nonprofit because I could see how IFCS’ services improve the health of our Denver area community. Starting “from scratch” – its humble beginnings in 1964 – IFCS has grown and expanded to serve thousands of children, families, and seniors each month.
Throughout my life, health and service have become increasingly important to me. I’m grateful for all the people who support IFCS with gifts of time, energy, and financial contributions, and this blog is my way of contributing my own gifts to support IFCS’ work. Twice monthly, I will explore with you some of the people and work that make IFCS a treasured resource in the Denver metro area. Join me as we journey behind-the-scenes to discover the secret ingredients of this small nonprofit that partners with the community to nourish lives.
I look forward to learning with you!
