Simpler Lives owner Kathy Kowrach is a born and bred Jersey girl. After graduating from Newark State College (now Kean University), she spent her professional career in various customer service roles within the financial industry. Kathy found working in finance challenging, educational and rewarding. However, she also found herself working 10-12 hour days and some weekends, leaving her little time for a personal life. She often wished she had an assistant.
When it came time for Kathy to move on to her second career, a friend suggested the idea of starting a business that offers personal assistance and concierge services to over-worked and time-deprived residents of Central Jersey. With that, and her long experience with too much to do and not enough time, the fuse was lit!
In preparation for her new business venture, Kathy studied with and graduated from the Triangle Concierge Masters Academy under the tutelage of Katharine Giovanni. She is commissioned as a Notary Public in Mercer County, New Jersey, and is a member of the Pennington Business & Professional Association. She was a member of the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners where she served as the President of the Central Jersey region. She lives in Hamilton (Mercer County), New Jersey with her husband and her canine fur babies.
