Kathleen founded SFGP in 1991 as a private not for profit cooperate guardianship program. Her goal was to provide guardianship services to all in need for an affordable price with services being provided by experts in their fields.

She was born and raised in South Florida and has been a professional guardian since 1983. She started her career as a volunteer with Broward County Elderly and Veterans. As a professional guardian, she has enjoyed the confidence of various community organizations, financial institutions, the legal community, hospitals, nursing homes and private citizens who have referred clients to her.

Kathleen works closely with her professional staff and her approach to guardianship is one of personalized attention. It is her belief that each of our clients should receive the individualized care that she would provide a member of her own family.
