Communications & Volunteer Engagement Manager
Katie comes to Acton-Boxborough United Way from Budget Buddies, a nonprofit that runs financial empowerment programming for low-income women, where she served as Director of Operations. Katie earned her certificate in Nonprofit Management and Leadership through the Institute for Nonprofit Practice in 2018, and completed Foundation for MetroWest's Emerging Leaders Academy in 2019.
Raised in Boxborough, Katie's love of nonprofit work stems from her first job at the Discovery Museum at the age of 14. She holds a B.A. in communications and political science from a dually-accredited American university in Switzerland. Katie served on the AB school committee for five years, before relocating to Harvard in 2018. She is a proud mom of an awesome ten-year-old daughter, three stepsons (ages 10, 12, and 15), and two pups. Katie joined Acton-Boxborough United Way in July 2020.
