The past 3 years she was the Director of Financial Planning at Alameda Hospital, after 14 years at Children's Hospital Oakland in the same position. Katy loved dogs, with three at home including her 6 year old Black Tri Australian Shepherd Bindi. They competed in Agility and quickly rose through the ranks to the highest levels in both AKC and CPE. She had a very close group of friends from her college days at Cal Poly who got together with their families every summer for the past 25 years. She also loved Lake Tahoe, and Cal's Lair of the Golden Bear alumni family camp, camping with the entire Silverman family for more than 25 years, and helping her husband Gary manage Camp Gold for 4 summers.
