Katie is the Special Assistant to the President and CEO of PeaceTech Lab, Sheldon Himelfarb. She is Sheldon’s “right and left hand” in all matters involving the Lab and its partners.
Prior to PeaceTech Lab, Katie served as a fellow with Kiva Microfunds, working with one of their field partners in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. She also worked with Hagar International in Hanoi, Vietnam, to provide rehabilitation services to victims of human trafficking in the region. Katie received her B.A. in Political Science from California Polytechnic State University and her M.A. in International Economics and International Law from The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Katie has slowly but surely been making progress on her bucket list which includes: working on a vineyard, salsa dancing in Cuba, and running a half marathon (she wants you to know, she is not a runner).
