Kathleen Donovan started as Development Director in November of 2017, and is responsible for fundraising, grants, planning events, and marketing the Kentucky Equine Humane Center.
For twenty years she was an independent media and marketing professional, traveling the world to cover horse racing through writing, television, and video. She has worked at racetracks, on farms, and at the sales. As a freelancer, she has written for most of the major racing publications around the world, and contributed in various capacities to live shows and documentaries on American television networks, as well as internationally for Sky and RTE (Irish television). For five years before coming to the Center, she was a Financial Advisor and insurance agent, then wanted to use her financial experience and marketing expertise for a non-profit, and return to working in the horse industry.
