Kathy Locke

Healthier Choices Team Leader
Kathy Locke is the team leader of our Healthier Choices Team. She’s a Greenville, OH native, but you wouldn’t know that with how involved she has been in the Hancock County community. She spent 21 years in contract food service management, and retired 11 years ago to focus on family and service. Her hope for healthy365 is to create an environment where the healthy choice is unavoidable. Kathy loves to travel and is often described as a hardworking multi-tasker in her leadership roles on the City of Greenfield’s Board of Public Works, as a board member for HRHF and LINK, and as a member of Tri Kappa’s Upsilon Chapter. Kathy’s educational background is in foods and nutrition in business, and she would like to see healthy365 be able to build a community where everyone moves more and eliminates empty calories (foods with no nutritional value) from their diet.
