Partnership Director, Partnerships
Katherine has spent her entire 14-year career in the field of education. After receiving her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Missouri, she spent nine years in the classroom as a secondary Social Studies and English teacher in Columbia, Missouri. Katherine continued her professional journey at the University of Missouri where she directed K-12 educational programs designed to create more equitable opportunities in STEM and design-thinking for students across the country and the world. Committed to life-long learning, Katherine completed her Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis in 2020.
Katherine is deeply motivated by EOS’ mission because she has seen firsthand how EOS partnerships upend systemic harm and transform schools. She is excited to forge strong partnerships, rooted in mutual respect, with families, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders so that historically excluded students are provided more opportunities to thrive at school.
When Katherine isn’t chasing around her three elementary-aged kids, she enjoys kitchen dance parties, tending to her succulent garden, bird-watching, making last-minute travel plans, and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
