Kathleen Lynch is the executive director of the Xavier Society for the Blind, which provides Catholic reading materials in Braille, large
print and audio CDs and is an affiliate library of the National Library Service.
A native of Boston, Lynch earned a bachelor’s in economics from Wellesley College, and a master’s from Northeastern University. Married with three children, Lynch is third generation
Irish. She traces her roots to Co. Cork. She has traveled through the Shannon region, Galway, the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula.
“For 19 years I have used my business skills from my MBA and my Irish Catholic heritage to successfully further the mission of the Xavier Society for the Blind,” she says.
“To me, Irish heritage is one of welcome and warmth. The Xavier Society is part of that heritage by welcoming blind people with an interest in spiritual reading to deepen their faith through literature in accessible formats.”
