Let’s hear from Katie!
What do you enjoy most about volunteering with MESA?
I enjoy believing and supporting survivors in our community who are too frequently disbelieved and re-victimized by society. I also enjoy empathizing with and aiding secondary survivors, or those who are supporting survivors they know personally
How long have you been with MESA?
I worked with MESA and SPAN’s joint partnership Peers Building Justice for two years while in high school, and have been on the hotline since fall of 2011.
What was the last book you read? Believer by David Axelrod.
What is your biggest accomplishment to date?
I was the deputy finance director for a 2014 Secretary of State campaign that fundraised a record-breaking amount for that office.
What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?
Water, a phone, and a boat.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
I would have Sherlock-like powers of deduction so I could solve crimes and entertain people at dinner parties.
