First Lady Kathy Evers was born and raised in Plymouth, Wisconsin and met her future husband in kindergarten. They had their first date at the junior prom and have been married for more than 40 years.
Kathy graduated from Plymouth High School and later received an associate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac. In a career spanning more than three decades, Kathy held IT management positions with private companies and provided computer software training and hardware technical support in Wisconsin public school districts, technical colleges, and in the private sector. She and the Governor lived and worked in various communities throughout Wisconsin including Tomah, Oakfield, Verona, Oshkosh, and Madison.
Throughout her long career, Kathy has worked with people of all ages in technical support, training and management roles. Now that Kathy is retired from that field, she is an avid pickleball player and yoga practitioner. She and the Governor have three adult children, all public school graduates, and nine grandchildren.
