Kathryn Fenley, Treasurer & Secretary

Kathryn began her career as a Veterinary Technician in St. Charles, Missouri while she earned her Bachelor of Arts in communications and a minor in design. Due to her love and compassion for animals, she continued working as a Vet Tech for fifteen years while also working in the insurance industry. A career change in 2003 brought her to Indianapolis, Indiana where she began working for a law firm. In 2004, Kathryn traveled to Kenya where she met Daphne Sheldrick of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. As a result of that trip, she was offered the position of Treasurer and Secretary for U.S. Friends of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust; she worked for U.S. Friends for six years. Her extensive experience with nonprofits and her desire to help protect African elephants and wildlife brought her to Big Life Foundation in 2011. Kathryn and her husband reside in Indianapolis where she continues to work full-time in marketing for one of Indianapolis’ leading law firms. Kathryn can be contacted at kathryn@biglife.org.
