Katherine is a Seattle native and has enjoyed working with youth for over 14 years through mentoring, coaching soccer, and social work. She received her MSSW from The University of Texas at Austin and has worked in Child Welfare. Katherine loves working with O2A because it is a combination of so many of her interests: serving vulnerable children, traveling the world, and using sustainable measures to minimize the impact we have on this earth. She has traveled to Uganda, Rwanda, and Tanzania with Orphans to Ambassadors and can't wait to go back! When not working for O2A, Katherine plays indoor soccer, reads voraciously, and spends much of her free time at Century Link Field supporting her beloved Seahawks and Sounders.
