She served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Western Highlands of Guatemala, where she trained community health promoters and facilitated community-based health interventions, such as building clean cookstoves. After Peace Corps, Kathryn joined the staff of EntreMundos, a non-profit incubator and human rights organization in Guatemala. As the Coordinator of Volunteer Programs, she partnered with more than 100 local organizations to strengthen volunteer programs and identify collaborative opportunities. In 2014, Kathryn relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to begin the Health Careers Program at Harvard Extension School.

Now at JHBSPH, she has joined the research team of Dr. William Checkley, and is helping to run a field trial to test new devices that measure exposure to indoor air pollution. Kathryn will continue to pursue her interest in creative, technology-based community health interventions that seek to benefit vulnerable populations around the world.
