Kathy Krizmanich – Administrative Assistant

kathy_150x200In February 2015, Kathy was permanently hired by The Pap Corps. Two years prior to that, she volunteered two days a week, while working another part time job. What led Kathy to The Pap Corps was very personal. Like so many of us, her life and the lives of those closest to her were devastated by cancer.

Being a cancer survivor herself of twelve years has taught Kathy the preciousness of life. She also lost her husband and parents to cancer. Her desire is to help others affected by the disease and she does this by being a part of The Pap Corps.

As Administrative Assistant, her skills from her many years in Office Management and as an Executive Assistant have served to be of utmost support to the wonderfully dedicated Pap Corps volunteers and office staff.

Some of Kathy’s interests outside of work include cooking, reading, music and spending time with friends. She has one son, Phil, a Marine Corps Veteran, who served in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan.

Kathy loves her job and is honored to be a part of The Pap Corps.


Aaron Pleat – Systems Data Analyst

Aaron has worked for The Pap Corps since August of 2015. He deals with membership, events, the website, and special projects with the development team, as well as handling minor in-house technical support issues.
