Kate is a Program Officer at HFJ, facilitating community-led grantmaking programs and building deep relationships with our grantee partners. She comes to Headwaters with a long history in non-profits, having worked in land conservation, immigrant rights, cooperatives, criminal justice, community development, and voting rights. Her love for the people driving community change has led her to Headwaters, where she works to resource organizations that she knows are systematically under-resourced.
Kate is a midwestern-southerner, with roots in Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas and Alabama. She loves hosting people around her table, eating delicious food, and making pie, which she believes is the perfect breakfast. She raises two young people with her partner, and lives in South Minneapolis near Lake Nokomis. She practices community building with her neighbors and is deeply invested in the work of healing white culture so that we all may be free.
