Policy and Planning Co-Chair
I was born and raised in Fredericksburg, attended St. Mary’s School from Kindergarten through 8th grade and earned my B.A. from U.T. San Antonio. I have been married to Casie Staudt-Kiehne since 2005. Our daughters, Kenley (1st grade) and Peyton (4k), are 4th generation St. Mary’s School students and 2nd generation visitors of Mr. Pahl’s office. A little more than 2 years ago Casie and I decided to take a leap of faith and return to Fredericksburg as we couldn’t imagine our girls growing up anywhere else. This has been the best decision and we are all very happy and proud to call Fredericksburg and St. Mary’s home again. Since getting back I have joined Optimist Club of Fredericksburg, where I serve as a Director, am a member of Gillespie County Leadership class 2016 and volunteer at school functions as much as I am able to. I work as a REALTOR® with the Real Estate Advisory Team and Casie is employed as a Dental Hygienist at Fredericksburg Dentistry. I am excited to be a part of the St. Mary’s School council and look forward to making myself available to listen to the school community and to help ensure that St. Mary’s School is the best that it can be.
