Kathy Jolink

Kathy began worshipping as a parishioner at Good Shepherd nearly 30 years ago, and joined the staff in 2009. As the Coordinator of Pastoral Care and Senior Ministry & Wedding Administrator, she helps parishioners at all stages in life – from engaged couples and new parents, to the surviving families of our beloved, deceased parishioners and everyone in between. Born and raised in Brownsville, Texas, Kathy grew up on the southernmost border with Mexico and near the beach. College brought Kathy to Austin, where she earned a Plan II Liberal Arts degree from the University of Texas, and the beauty and friendliness of this city have kept her here. Kathy has five grown children: three here in Austin and two in Houston; plus two wonderful grandchildren. In her spare time, she loves spending time with family and friends, walking in her neighborhood, tap dancing, and Tai Chi.
