About Us

Kathi Montheith, Principal of KJM Guardianship, Vermonnt

Kathi Montheith; Principal

Kathi is a native Vermonter, having grown up in Burlington.  She spent most of her adult career in sales and marketing but her interest in our aging population began as a child.  She grew up spending much of her time with elderly relatives, being exposed to the joys and the challenges they, and the entire extended family, faced as they aged.  Caring and advocating for older adults became a way of life. "At a young age I learned that it is a privilege to learn from and serve older adults.” 

Over the years Kathi founded dementia support groups for family caregivers as well as younger adults suffering from forms of dementia.  She was on the board of directors of Age Well (formerly CVAA) for six years, President for five of those years.  She founded Vermont Elder Resource Group (VERGVT), a membership organization of for profit and non-profit professionals serving the Vermont elder community.  Kathi has provided education and support services to families, individuals and staff at care facilities and home care agencies.
