Kathleen Keen grew up in Midland County and went to Michigan State University. She couldn’t find a job right away in Michigan, so she moved to Missouri and was a conservation law officer.
She moved back to Michigan and in 2004, joined the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in the Cadillac office. Kathleen was able to work in Gladwin and Bay City; but, came back again to the Cadillac area. Currently, she does communications work in the wildlife world which ranges from education settings, to awareness material, to videos, to writing press releases. All connecting people to wildlife!
