My CSTA Story

Since joining CSTA in 2021, Katie has learned a great deal about CS education and its importance in today’s society. Having little prior exposure to computer science education, she is constantly amazed by the reach of CS education, both inside and outside the classroom. By overseeing the amazing work CSTA has accomplished thus far with support from federally funded grants, she hopes to continue to see a rise in equitable access to CS education for all students in K–12 and beyond.

My Story

Katie is responsible for all federal grant activity for CSTA. She manages pre-award and post-award activities and ensures compliance, policies, and procedures are followed in relation to all research. She earned her undergraduate degree in history from Flagler College, spent a year as a literacy tutor with AmeriCorps working with English-language learners, and obtained a graduate degree in higher education from the University of Florida. Most of Katie’s career has been as a research administrator in higher education, and she is happy to bring both her education and grants background to the nonprofit sector.

Outside of work, you can find Katie reading multiple books at once, walking her dog, or watching the latest K-drama on Netflix.
