Kolbe is a loving mother of two wonderful children and a leader in her community. She is a New Brighton native, residing in Beaver Falls, who has dedicated much of her life in service to others, especially youth in her community. Kolbe is an advocate for mental health awareness and character development with transitional-age youth.
Kolbe realizes the potential in her community – in both the City and its youth. She also sees the potential of the rest of Beaver County, Lawrence County, and Butler County. She knows that with the right people – and the right amount of effort – that our communities will grow to become stronger and more united. That, in time, people will recognize that our communities are thriving and want to stay here and move here – not move away. Right now, the tap is closed – Kolbe is ready to open that tap once again. There is so much good just waiting to be brought into our communities – and she is ready to help seize it.
Becoming a politician was never Kolbe’s plan. But one Sunday, while leading her weekly Girl’s Group at the Red House Ministry in Beaver Falls, she had an epiphany – she spends so much time telling her girls to care about politics. That they are the future of our community and country. That they are tomorrow’s leaders. That they are going to be the ones who change the world.
Then it occurred to her – she is the leader today.
