“The thrill of working in educational research is knowing that behind every number or data trend, there is a young person whose education and future can be positively impacted by our work.”

She is also the co-founder of a community-based educational program in northern Uganda for children orphaned by conflict. Katie has worked as a teacher and social worker in various domestic and international settings, which eventually led her to Talent work in the education sector.
