Kathy Nielsen

After working in the insurance field for many years, Kathy retired from Hayes Insurance and began volunteering at Jennie Edmundson in the Jennie Gift Shop.  Over the next 8 years she volunteered just over 4,000 hours at various Jennie events including: County Fairs, Health Fairs and Screenings, Iowa Hospital Association Legislative Days, Iowa Hospital Association Meetings, Super Sitters and she even filled several Auxiliary Board positions.  Her main focus was the gift shop, but she also liked helping out in the volunteer office where she was able to visit and catch up on everyone’s families.  Kathy had a way about her that made people feel her compassion.
