Katryna “Kat” joined the STEPS team in 2021. She has lived in Washington the majority of her life and moved to Seattle to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Seattle University, and plans to continue her education in the field of Psychology.
Kat started working with children through a preschool program called Jumpstart during her years as an undergraduate student. There is where she found her passion for working with children and continued that work as a preschool teacher after graduating in 2019. As a preschool teacher, Kat’s love for the field continued to grow and develop in many ways which led her to find a passion in being an advocate for children beyond the classroom setting.
In her free time, Kat loves connecting with her family, spending time with her friends and beloved cats, or relaxing at home with some video games.
