Katie has worked in sports-based youth development programming for over ten years, starting with her time as a graduate assistant within the Athletics Department at UConn. She worked for seven years at Major League Baseball helping to manage the international RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities) program before moving on to the New York Road Runners, where she oversaw the project to redevelop the organization's entire youth program platform. After many years in an office, she was motivated to return to direct service work and joined the Y staff to have an opportunity to manage programming within the public school system. Katie now serves as the COMPASS High Program Director and SONYC Assistant Director at Columbia Secondary School, and also served as the Camp Twelve Trails Program Director in the summer of 2017.
