2014 Volunteer of the Year Kate Jones:
Kate Jones, who began volunteering with the Shepherd’s Center on November 19, 2013, is the Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church 2014 Volunteer of the Year. During that period she provided 108 medical rides for our seniors showing the true spirit of serving people unable to get to and from their medical appointments.
Kate, a native of Englewood, New Jersey, a retired pediatric nurse, has lived in McLean for 34 years. She was a stay-at home mom when her children were young and then worked 14 years in school clinics for the Fairfax County Health Department, the majority of that time serving at Langley High School in McLean. She retired from that position in 2005.
When she is not volunteering for the Shepherd’s Center, she loves to swim, bake and spend time with her family. Kate and her husband, Gordon, have three children, Sarah, Dylan and Ethan. She also has two grandsons, Caleb and Adam.
