IFI Director of Operations
Kathy Valente

Kathy joined the IFI team as our Director of Operations in 2008. Previously, Kathy was the state director for Concerned Women for America for 4 years. But even before that, Kathy and Dave worked together as volunteer activists battling pornography and obscenity in the public square.

Kathy has consistently taken a stand for traditional Judeo-Christian values and has worked tirelessly to foster a wholesome environment for family living, advocating for high community standards.

Kathy recognizes that sexual immorality, pornography, obscenity, promiscuity, state sanctioned abortion and gambling threaten the moral fabric of our society. The well being of our communities, the strength of our families, and the hearts, minds, lives and souls of our children are at risk when traditional values and high community standards are abandoned.

Kathy was married to her late husband for over 31 years, is the mother of three adult children and the grandmother of four.
