Katherine has worked for the Foundation in Eugene since 2016. Her primary responsibilities are coordinating events and the selection process for all four scholarship programs. Prior to coming to the Foundation, Katherine worked at the University of California Santa Cruz as a writing program advisor, where she directly supported students and managed events.

Katherine earned a bachelor’s degree in graphic communication from California Polytechnic State University. After college, she taught English for a year at the University of Machala, Ecuador. Machala is considered the banana capital of the world. Despite growing up on the California coast (Santa Cruz), she says she is not a “beach person” and has never surfed.
