Kathy Kramer, Executive Director
Kathy grew up in Maryland, one of ten in a close-knit family. After earning a BA in literature at a liberal arts college, 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 a different field. She studied nutrition at American Health Sciences University (now defunct) in order to be a licensed nutritionist and offer individual nutritional consultations and talks to people of all ages. Her interests and employment came together in 2004 when she called the president of the Foundation, Sally Fallon Morell, to ask about a job. Helping ship materials part-time eventually led to full-time work doing an array of tasks including accounting, chapter coordination, seminar organizing, continuing education work, outreach, and other details as necessary. She happily works with the Foundation’s small, devoted and hard working staff in a quiet, pleasant house in Washington, DC, that serves as the WAPF office.
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.
Agnes C. Bunagan, Membership Coordinator
Agnes is a teacher by training but has spent more years working in development and customer relations than in the classroom. Her preference for controlled chaos and a relaxed environment explain the discrepancy. She hasn’t given up hope though, as she’s currently learning braille code and plans to teach blind students in the future. Agnes first started working at the Weston A. Price Foundation as part-time summer staff after finishing a graduate program in 2010. What she thought was a part-time gig extended well beyond summer and turned into a full-time commitment after she resigned from teaching. She moved to Naples, Florida, in 2013 for another job but got lured back to the east coast in 2015 and back again to WAPF earlier this year. Her first assigned task at WAPF was quite an eye-opener. She read and summarized letters from inmates who wrote to the Foundation about their health issues over the soy laden diet in prisons. (The Foundation has been involved in a lawsuit put forth by inmates against the Illinois Department of Corrections over their soy laden diet since 2009.) Agnes grew up eating mostly real, unadulterated foods but beyond her mother’s perennial warning that junk food was bad for you, she didn’t know much about the diet-health connection. Sally Fallon and her landmark book Nourishing Traditions and the WAPF have since schooled her on this matter, and in fact, she wrote her graduate school research paper on the diet-cognition link for young children. She’s very grateful to do her bit to help advance the important work that Sally has started.
