Katie completed her degree at University of Southern California majoring in Business Administration/Finance with an emphasis in International Relations. Following graduation she accepted a position with Capital Group Companies as a financial statistician specializing in a top-tier Emerging Market equity and debt strategy. For six years she led results reporting: formulating complex portfolio statistics for internal and external clients; developing detailed analysis for investment professionals; and managing consistent global processes across North America, Asia, and Europe. She is particularly interested in sustainable development and innovative ways in which new technologies can increase the impact of development efforts in emerging economies.
Katie's love of exploring different cultures and people has taken her to 20 countries thus far (and hopefully!) with many more to come. In her free time you can find her running along the beach, practicing yoga, or going to concerts with friends.
