Prior to joining the Aspen Institute, she was Vice President of Customer Success for a digital marketing agency advising fitness industry clients on sales, marketing, and advertising.
Katherine has spent countless volunteer hours coaching and advocating for increased accessibility to youth sports. She previously served as the Director of McLean Youth Track and Field, on the board of directors of McLean Youth Athletics, and has been a proud member of the Fairfax County Athletic Council since 2016.
Outside of work, she enjoys walking, hiking, and traveling with her husband and 2 daughters. Katherine lives in Northern Virginia and indulges her love of sports by spending more time these days in the stands cheering on her favorite DC teams.
