Katherine serves as the Operations Associate at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health in the Washington, D.C. office, and is responsible for coordinating all administrative and programmatic needs for the Washington, D.C. office.

During college, Katherine’s desire for social change developed into a concrete passion for working to shift the status quo. In 2009, Katherine participated in a delegation with the non-profit BorderLinks in Tucson, Arizona, where she met with many activists on the border between the United States and Mexico. While studying at the National University of La Plata in 2010, Katherine served an internship at the Provincial Commission for Memory, an organization that preserves an archive of intelligence files from Argentina’s last dictatorship and works to represent youth against police abuses.

Most recently, Katherine worked at Young Invincibles, a national organization committed to mobilizing and expanding opportunities for young Americans between 18 and 34 years of age on issues like higher education, health care, and jobs. In 2012, Katherine managed operations over the course of a whirlwind 50-day bus tour that spanned 42 cities in 20 states. At YI, Katherine served in various operations roles, helping the organization run smoothly as it opened offices across the country and more than quadrupled in staff size.

Katherine holds a Bachelors of Arts in Latin American Studies from the College of William and Mary.
