Katherine is a Montanan who enjoys sharing her home state and her home with plenty of year-round VISIONS visitors. For the past five years, she also hosted Youra Moeun, a young woman from Cambodia who moved to Bozeman to complete a degree in Chemical Engineering. Katherine has two rescue yorkies that frequent the VISIONS office, and she tries to get out every once in awhile to enjoy the great outdoors—a requirement of anyone living in Bozeman.
