Having a young toddler of my own, I had a desire to focus on supporting children and families more holistically, which led to my current role as home visiting systems coordinator.

She also plans workforce development activities, which include the biennial Home Visiting Summit. Katrin previously served as the organization’s safety initiatives coordinator.
