Volunteer, BS Nursing/MBA
Mary-Katherine has a BS-Nursing and an MBA. As a stay home Mom of 4 boys, she accepted a board position for a non-profit called Youth Life (similar to YoungLife) in MO in 1999. The Youth Life organization won a government grant to teach abstinence health education in the school systems and finding teacher was difficult. Since Mary-Katherine had a medical background (and they couldn’t get anyone else to do it) they sent her to be trained. The calling was immediate and the next 15 years Mary-Katherine taught abstinence education in middle school, high school, church, community groups, parent seminars, and anywhere there was an audience. In addition, she and her husband Jason have walked alongside three of their sons as they have each battled drug addiction and abuse. The family has experienced three different Christian regeneration programs based on the various ages and stages of their sons when they attended a program. Ryan Stringfield and Jeff Knapp have been a huge part of the Blain boys’ journeys and it is a pleasure to think that the Blains may now play a role in supporting Pathways2Life in reaching other families and young people.
