Alumna of the Year, Katherine "Kay" Quigley Dussouy '99
Archbishop Chapelle High School is honored to name Kay as the 2020 Alumna of the Year because of her constant support of our school and her loyalty to green & white. We all appreciate Kay's support over the years and are thrilled to honor her with our 2020 Alumna of the Year award!
Katherine “Kay” Quigley Dussouy graduated from Archbishop Chapelle High School in 1999. She received a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Louisiana State University in May of 2003. While at LSU, she was a member of Delta Gamma sorority. She served the chapter as Vice President of Finance from 2002-2003.
After college, Kay started her sales career as a sales trainee with Coca Cola Bottling Company in Harahan, Louisiana. After her time there she was recruited to join King Pharmaceuticals as a sales representative in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her time with King Pharmaceuticals resulted in several promotions and she earned the 2008 President’s Club award for excellence in sales. In 2010, Pfizer, Inc. acquired King Pharmaceuticals, and Kay has since continued her career goals with Pfizer. At Pfizer, Kay serves as the South Central Region Operations Expert, a South Central Region’s Leadership Lab member, as well as a contributor to the Woman’s Field Network.
Kay’s dream as a young girl was to be in the pharmaceutical industry and in her 16 year career, she has seen her dreams come true. Kay has said, “helping others thrive with diverse and quality pharmaceuticals inspires me everyday. Having the ability to leave a positive impression on each customer is something I am very proud of.”
Outside of her career with Pfizer, Kay is an Archbishop Chapelle Alumnae Board Member, and served as Secretary of the board from 2017-2019. Kay has devoted countless hours of service to her Alma Mater, and looks forward to contributing many more.
Kay’s proudest accomplishment is being the mother to her 3 beautiful girls, Kate Whitney (10), Abby Rose (7), and Ruby Ann (3), who are all future Chipmunks. She is equally proud that she has been happily married for 15 years to her high school sweetheart, David Dussouy.
“I am super excited and extremely humbled to be chosen as Archbishop Chapelle’s 2020 Alumna of the year. My years at Chapelle were some of the most memorable and cherished times in my life. I still think there is more that I can contribute as an Alumna, because my Chapelle family has given so much to me over the years. The things I learned throughout my time at Chapelle have shaped me into the woman I am today.”
