Kathy is married to Leland Huey and together they have three extraordinary adult children…Robert, Bradley & Katie. She was born and raised in Mobile but moved to the Eastern Shore 24 years ago and hasn’t looked back since! Outside of Kathy’s job, she loves spending time with her family in Point Clear, fishing the Delta and hitting the beach.
Kathy works at Truland Homes where she is blessed with an awesome job with great people who encourage and emphasize healthy eating and daily exercise. In January of 2017 she decided to pick up running so she could spend more time with her daughter who is a freshman at Auburn. Little did she know that running would soon be in her blood! She has seen how running has changed her life- not only has it been an amazing stress reliever for her, but also has been a new way to challenge herself.
