Kathy Anker has worked for Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires and Southern Vermont since 2013, developing and managing training programs to help community members find their way to employment opportunities. Kathy’s personal philosophy is that everyone has the ability to be successful when given the tools and knowledge necessary to better understand their potential, believe in themselves, and ultimately to reach their goals.
Before joining Goodwill’s mission services team, Kathy spent 30 years in the corporate world where she managed and directed inside sales and customer service teams. She attributes her success in the corporate arena to her willingness to listen to employees, discover their strengths and weaknesses, and to provide them with the tools, coaching, and encouragement needed to be successful. Kathy holds a B.A. in philosophy from Monmouth University.
