Katie brings over ten years of experience in social justice philanthropy and issue campaigning and has extensive experience in nonprofit management, strategic planning, grantmaking, and program evaluation and implementation.
Prior to joining the Innovation Network, Katie managed the Berger-Marks Foundation, a small private foundation that funds women’s leadership development in social justice and labor organizations, and led the Foundation through a three-year process to spend-down the Foundation’s assets. Katie has also worked on the grants management and program teams at the Proteus Fund, helped develop a field organizing program at Corporate Accountability International, and managed environmental advocacy campaigns, including directing a statewide canvass office, in New Hampshire.
