Kathy and her husband Paul Carson (both professional athletes) started Carson International, Inc. together, from their passion of sports and a desire to create ‘great’ events that are both world class unique and entertaining, and that provide a first class platform for athletes and the sponsors. That vision has continued to keep Carson International, Inc in the forefront of event development and creating important partnerships that have become ‘iconic’ and span time, such as the National Dog Show Presented by Purina, the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge, and the Cuervo Gold Crown Pro Beach Volleyball Series. She loves her role co-leading the company. Giving back to the community is an important part of her mission with the company.

Kathy enjoys living and working in Ketchum, Idaho, and all it has to offer with the many outdoor activities, and spending time with her friends and family and her beloved Australian Shepard, Blaze.
