Katie leads innovative social impact initiatives for corporations and non-profit organizations around the globe. She is the Director of Global Partnerships at Mama Hope and co-founder of Glorious, a holistic community development organization that invests in the vision of strong local leaders to build sustainable communities.

A Boston native & Boston College graduate, Katie is often on the go traveling but her return tickets bring her to Montreal where she and her husband, Antoine, are currently based.
