Originally from Wayland, MA, Katherine holds an undergraduate degree in International Affairs from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to MSFS, she worked for Chemonics International and Jefferson Consulting Group and interned for the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Mission to the U.N Human Rights Council in Geneva. She speaks French.

I chose MSFS for the close-knit community, small class sizes, and the unique opportunities to engage directly with policymakers. However, what impresses me most about the program is my classmates’ unwavering passion for global service, regardless of which sector they plan to go into.”
