Born in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, Kathleen Sleckman currently
works at a golf course in Illinois where she moves about selling thirsty
golfers snacks and beer. She previously worked as a bartender, computer
graphics artist and a plumber in the Seabees with the United States Navy.
She attended St. Paul's Catholic Grade School, Manitowoc Lincoln High
School and the U.W. Extension Program in Manitowoc.
Sleckman has lived in Port Hueneme, California, Pacific Beach, Washington,
Agana, Guam (for military service) and Oxnard, California. She describes
herself as intellectually astute, sarcastically witty and a tad bit
shallow. Her hero is Max Factor as, without his invention of make-up, she
would be a veritable shut-in. She believes her excellent puzzle-solving
skills, athleticism, knowledge of outdoor survivor skills and ability to
motivate others will help her go far on SURVIVOR.
Sleckman resides in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, with her husband, Rick, their
six-year-old child, Maddison, and their dog, Wilson Von Barkypants
Goldendoodle. Her birth date is August 14, 1962.
