Kathy Whalen

Director of Communications (she/her/hers)

Kathy is a native of Mercer County, New Jersey and holds a BFA in graphic design. She is a seasoned creative professional who specializes in the dynamic field of communication and consistently demonstrates a passion for creating compelling messages, visually engaging content, and effective strategies that drive successful communication campaigns. That passion and those skills are evident at the Center for Modern Aging Princeton where Kathy oversees all aspects of CMAP communication efforts – including the website, newsletter, e-news, and special appeals. Kathy’s hobbies include photography, painting and drawing, and playing “Settlers of Catan” with her family. Of CMAP’s mission, Kathy says “I am honored to work for a team that is dedicated to helping older adults thrive…and building a compassionate and inclusive society, which gives me hope for the future.” In her retirement, Kathy hopes to travel to new places and carve out more time for painting, drawing, and gardening.



Your generosity is truly the fuel that empowers CMAP to change lives and to help older adults discover their “why!”

We invite you to donate to the 2023–2024 Annual Giving Campaign by June 30 to help us reach our goal.
