A life-long student to curiosity and a travel enthusiast, Katie’s academic achievements and international professional pursuits have forged a foundation in visionary strategic thinking and social responsibility. Katie greatly enjoyed her Bachelor’s of Integrative Strategic Communication (Account Management pathway) and Innovation Network for Entrepreneurial Thinking (iNET) Certificate at the University of Kentucky. While there, she also had the exciting opportunity to intern at Keeneland Association, Inc., where she gained valuable insights and skills in coordinating large-scale, back-to-back events for thousands in attendance from all around the world. Heartfelt connections with the global community continued as she performed as a professional character entertainer for Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World Resort. As a character performer, she was granted the unique privilege to pay specialized attention to each child and work to make their Disney experience memorable and magical. She met with families from across the world and witnessed the beautiful spirit of our shared, interconnected humanity. Katie is thrilled to now play a part in creating sustainable change with Children of Vietnam!
