Two teenage girls discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing at an early age due to meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a poor neighborhood. Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together.

Kathryn Kennish is the mother of Bay and Toby Kennish and the biological mother of Daphne Vasquez.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

At first, she wasn't too excited about telling her friends that Bay and Daphne were switched at birth for the sake of keeping her reputation, but after some pressing from Regina, she finally comes clean at a fundraiser. She was also against Daphne riding a motorcycle with Emmett, but it was again Regina who saved the day, telling her that Daphne was not her kid and that she and John should not try to co-parent her. Kathryn and Regina more often clash than compliment each other, but they have their moments. For example, she helped get Regina a job at a local salon. Kathryn finally releases her book on the switch which causes some problems in the Kennish household. Kathryn slowly finds a way to get Toby to stop moping around the house. Kathryn finds out about Angelo's baby from Regina and they are both trying to figure out how to tell Bay who already knows. Bay tells Kathryn that Regina started drinking again and that Regina is going to rehab to get help.

Kathryn is a very strong role model. She is a supportive wife and mother who likes to be involved in her children's lives even while having a very hectic one of her own. She has a beautiful singing voice.
