Kathy Perkes

Chief Financial and Administration Officer

Kathy Perkes first developed an interest in African women’s issues while working in northern Tanzania eight years early in her career. As Finance Director for a large group of tourism-related companies, Kathy was able to employ for-profit strategies to create positive conservation outcomes. Upon returning to the U.S., Kathy settled in Wyoming and, together with her husband, managed a nationally-ranked Hereford ranch, successfully combining traditional ranching values with business best practices. Kathy joined Village Enterprise after serving as the senior director of finance for Teton Science Schools, where she focused on creating financially sustainable educational programs. Kathy received a BA from the University of Southern California and spends her time exploring wild places, riding horses, and cross-country skiing.
