Rev. Kathleen Robertson King
UCM Campus Minister
Kathleen Robertson King was very involved with UCM during her own college days at WMU, graduating with a BSW in 1992. After a year of service in Peterborough, England through the Young Adult Volunteer program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), where she worked with homeless teens, Kathleen worked as an intensive case manager with chronically homeless clients with major mental health diagnoses, and as a director of Christian Education in metro Detroit before responding to a call to ministry. Kathleen graduated from Louisville Seminary in 1999 and began working as an associate campus minister with UCM that same year. Kathleen is married to Kevin, a librarian, and mom to two delightful daughters, Abigail, and Rachael. Kathleen loves to read, write, cook, discover new music, and learns something every single day from the amazing students with whom UCM works.

Kaet Teunessen is a sophomore Studying Chemical Engineering with minors in Mathematics and Spanish. When Kaet have free time, she loves to read, listen to music, or go running outside. Last year, she got involved with UCM when she volunteered for the Alternative Spring Break trip to Philadelphia. The trip pushed Kaet outside of her comfort zone and taught her so much. It was one of her best experiences at Western. This year Kaet is very excited to step out of her comfort zone even more, and lead the Alternative Spring Break trip to San Francisco!
