Kathy Kramer, Executive Director
Kathy grew up in Maryland, one of ten in a close-knit family. After earning a BA in literature, she trained and worked as a Montessori elementary teacher for several years until her own health problems sparked an interest in health and nutrition which gradually drew her into working in that field. She studied nutrition at American Health Sciences University (now defunct) to be a licensed nutritionist. For several years, she offered nutritional consultations and talks to people of all ages. Her interests and employment came together in 2003 when she called Sally Fallon Morell to ask about a job with the Foundation. Helping ship materials part-time eventually led to full-time work doing an array of tasks as executive director. She is married, lives in Maryland and loves hiking and Nationals baseball. For sixteen years, she has felt honored to be part of the Foundation’s hard-working staff and involved in its important mission.
Tim Boyd, Education Services
Tim Boyd was born and raised in Ohio, graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer engineering, and worked in the defense industry in Northern Virginia for over twenty years. During that time, a slight case of arthritis led him to discover that nutrition makes a difference, and then nutrition became a serious hobby. After a fun time in the electronics field, he decided he wanted to do something more important. He is now enjoying his dream job working for the Weston A. Price Foundation doing book and video reviews, managing website content, doing shipping, answering a variety of questions, and even handling facility maintenance.
Yolanda Hawthorne, Membership Coordinator
Yolanda combines a lifelong passion for food, design and the healing arts into her position as membership coordinator. Yolanda graduated from The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City where she studied under the tutelage of Annemarie Colbin, who introduced her to Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions, which totally changed the way she viewed “healthy eating”. In addition, she studied at Gulliver’s Living and Learning Center (now The Institute for Integrative Nutrition) and the Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute in Puerto Rico. Yolanda co-founded Zenful Bites in 2012 where their sole purpose was to address these components of the food system: food education, access and sustainability via community outreach, cooking classes/demos and after-school programming. This all came to an abrupt end during covid. At WAPF, Yolanda is able to incorporate her love for hospitality by greeting cheerful members and by cooking for WAPF staff at bimonthly staff meetings. As resident chef she’s able to cook for and work with the Queen of Ancestral Cooking, our very own Les Dames d’Escoffier, Sally Fallon Morrel, which Yolanda says has been one of the highlights her career.
