Hi there! I'm Katie. I've recently joined Social Capital Inc.'s Woburn team where I'll be doing AmeriCorps service as a Volunteer Outreach Coordinator over the next ten months. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst this past May while majoring in communication and political science and am a native of Gloucester, MA. I'm excited to see what this service year will have in store and the opportunity to create a positive and lasting impact within the Woburn community
