Kathi Ferguson

Kathi Ferguson, our featured member, is our very own ABWA-Wind Song Chapter Treasurer.  A Southern California native, Kathi has lived and worked in Orange County most of her life.

The majority of her career has been in the trademark litigation field, but recently she started her first venture in the entrepreneurial business world.  Find Joy Gift Wrapping was birthed out of her love for designing and creating packages and baskets for special occasions, whether is be for an individual gift or a corporate gathering.

Quality time with her family means the world to Kathi.  She’s been married to her husband, Bill, for 44 years, has three children, 2 grandchildren and three rescue pups who aren’t spoiled one bit.

Kathi has been a member of ABWA for about a year and a half and strongly values the sisterhood the club provides.
