Kate Cowan and Michelle McCormick
Girl Scouts of Northern California

They will discuss how they've invested donations made by Rotary to improve Girl Scout programs.

Michelle McCormick, Chief Mission Delivery Officer, has worked for Girl Scouts for almost 40 years. She has been involved in all aspects of the organization that provide direct services to our members - from membership development, adult training, and program management, to community outreach, outdoor program, property management, and product sales. Michelle has many wonderful memories as a camper and staff member at various Girl Scout camps. She even worked at Skylark Ranch one summer! Little did she know then that she would make her career as a professional Girl Scout in the same council.

Kate Cowan, Director of Institutional Giving, has been at GSNorCal for five and a half years. She and her team work with foundations, corporations, and other organizations whose values align with Girl Scouts and are passionate about investing in the future of girls. Much to her mother’s disappointment, she didn’t like camping much, but she still stayed in Girl Scouts until high school anyway. Her troop camped at Camp Bothin and walked across the Golden Gate Bridge when they bridged from Juniors to Cadettes. She has many fond memories of earning badges and learning how to cook with her troop!
