Katherine completed her undergraduate studies at Dickinson College, PA, where she also played Varsity basketball and took a junior year to study in Venezuela and Costa Rica. She later earned an MBA from the University of Montana, and focused her thesis on corporate social responsibility. Before joining VISIONS full-time in 2007, Katherine worked with a start-up tech firm and also did contract work for environmental nonprofits.
Katherine is a native of Montana and 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.
