Kathryn Hixon, MBA
I was born and raised in Southern California. While earning my BA in Psychology, I worked as a flight attendant, traveling and connecting with people of all walks of life. I previously worked as a crisis counselor, but decided to pursue higher education and go into the business side of healthcare. I earned my MBA from Western Governors University and have experience working for both rural clinics and a larger hospital, connecting patients to resources available to them as a Patient Advocate. Most recently, I am coming from the VA, where I did payroll for the clinical team, as well as, worked with Veterans and their families to help them navigate through the VA healthcare system.
I am married to a wildland firefighter, and Oregon is the fifth state we have lived in, and are finally calling our forever home. We have two little boys and a German Shorthair Pointer named Scout. As a family we love to hike and fish, or do anything that gets us outside and exploring.
Coming to Dragonfly as the HR manager has been an exciting opportunity to use both previous experiences along with my education to help support staff. I am looking to building strong relationships with the team and supporting Dragonfly’s mission in our community!
