Kathleen Gagg is a successful business woman, recognized as a multimillion-dollar producer in real estate and currently is Vice President of Pope Properties, Inc., leading the Lifestyle Division but her true passion lies in helping numerous organizations, initiatives and programs whose goals are to serve our country’s military and their families.
Kathleen has held the volunteer position of Executive Director of Got Your Back Network since its inception, and brings her knowledge, passion and ability for promotion to Got Your Back Network. Her experience with non-profit organizations combined with her experience in developing and implementing strategic result oriented public relation and marketing campaigns has helped the organization gain important recognition and support.
Kathleen also serves as Chairman for “Project Gratitude” through GYBN, with Sharlene Hawkes (Miss America 1985), an initiative where surviving spouses and daughters of fallen military heroes travel from around the country as their VIP guests and partake in bonding activities as well as Miss America Pageant festivities. They are also honored and recognized as honorary Miss Americas through the Miss America Organization. Project Gratitude is centered on remembering the great service and ultimately the great sacrifice, but also serves as a time for these moms and daughters to bond and to leave “Project Gratitude” with a new sense of empowerment, inspiration and support!
She also is the Co-Founder of Camp Better America, a 501(c)(3) organization that helps military families reconnect after the service member returns from war. Military families come to their resort-like camps where the atmosphere is family-oriented and fun-filled. It is an opportunity for the service member and his /her families to relax, let their walls down, and reconnect with each other. At the same time, they are exposed to leading experts in the fields of mental health, financial services, emotional and physical well-being. (www.CampBetterAmerica.org)
She is passionate and committed to recognizing the great sacrifices that our men and women in uniform and their families make and encourages all to return the salute.
