Kate has been with Junior Achievement since 2016, starting as program coordinator, then community outreach coordinator, now settling into her role as Vice President. Kate has a career in the non-profit industry. After spending eight years as the program director at the local YMCA, Kate was searching for a way to strengthen our community through youth programs. When she heard about Junior Achievement, and its impact on the community, she knew she had found the perfect fit. With a passion for giving back, Kate helps connect businesses and volunteers with JA. She believes every student should be given the tools to be successful, see their own potential and learn about the opportunities that surround them. Outside of JA, she serves on the board of directors for Wyatt's Warriors Foundation.
