Kat works with Beacon congregations to develop affordable housing and to build their power to advocate for policies and funding to end homelessness. A longtime Beacon volunteer leader, she has a passion for Beacon’s mission, and a wealth of on-the-ground congregational experience working on advocacy, Families Moving Forward and collaborating to build affordable housing. Her professional background is in both the corporate and nonprofit worlds, and includes communications strategy and practice, public relations and fundraising.
Outside of Beacon, Kat leads two children’s drumming groups at her home congregation, Lake Nokomis Lutheran in South Minneapolis. She and her husband love spending time with their amazing grandkids and big circle of friends and family.
