Who is Kathy Booker Hood?


I had the pleasure and honor to attend a women's conference where Dean Kathy, as she is so eloquently known, spoke with such excitement, motivation and inspiration in her voice. There was no way I was going to leave that conference without getting to meet her personally. I am truly grateful that I did not allow fear to keep me from opening my mouth and receive the blessing she had to offer.
