Board of Trustees

The Kepler College Board of Trustees helps guide the college in its development, strategic planning and financial soundness. Board members have a passion for both astrology and the promotion of excellence in astrological education.  The individuals involved with Kepler College are a varied group, from administration to volunteers. We live throughout the United States and around the world. Some have over 40 years of experience practicing astrology and others are relative newcomers. We all care about promoting quality education and professionalism.
