Originally from Austin, TX, Kathryn moved to Missoula in early 2012, after studying as an Undergraduate in Sociology and Microbiology at the University of Texas Austin. It only took her a few months to start volunteering at Open Aid Alliance, an organization that she respected for practicing a nonjudgmental openness and desire to help all who walked in the door. Kathryn started doing HIV/HCV testing and counseling at the Poverello Center and Project Homeless Connect. She quickly came to love the organization, its mission to assist individuals in achieving health without stigma, and the phenomenal staff members that exude love and respect towards all clients. Once she was no longer able to consistently volunteer as a tester, Kathryn joined the Board of Directors in the summer of 2016.

She has worked and volunteered for various nonprofit organizations in Missoula since 2008 including the YWCA, CASA, and the Humane Society of Western Montana. She joined the Board of Directors in 2017.
