Corner of Change: Ann Kaiser

Ann Kaiser shares about the central importance of hospitality, her hope for Georgetown as we continue to grow and expand, and what she learned in her nursing career that now significantly informs the church, BeLocal, and Chamber work she is doing in Georgetown.

Ann was born on a small working farm in Iowa, with five siblings in a town with a population of 300. She began my “pre-nursing” career at 16, working at the local Nursing Home throughout high school. Received a Nursing degree in 1974 and to date has completed 42 years of Nursing, which included:

  •  Working for a small town in MD
  • Delivering medications by snowmobile to the area when needed
  • ICU Burn Nurse at the University of Iowa
  • Home Health and Oncology and Hospice, which was the past 25 years. 

She has been married to her best friend Glen for 25 years, with a blended family of 4 children, and now has four grandchildren. She moved from CA after 30 years to TX in April 2018. 

Joining the Chamber of Commerce of Georgetown was her first step in community involvement and opportunities. She received Chamber Ambassador of the Year in 2020 and 2022 and Chamber Volunteer of the Year in 2022. She is a 2020 graduate of Leadership Georgetown. She is an Ambassador with the Chamber and serves on the Non-Profit Boards of Seeds of Strength, Helping Hands, and Hospice Austin. As of Jan 2023, she represents a newcomers magazine, and BeLocal of Georgetown, serving as Director of Community Relations. 

She loves her church, First Presbyterian,  and has served as Diaconate Moderator for the past three years, as a Deacon now for almost 15 years, as an Evangelism Chair, and as a LOGOS table parent for three years.
