During her five-year tenure there, she grew membership from a small group of 40 to a movement of 140 organizations in 35 states and territories, and established a new headquarters and research partnership with Duke University, where she enjoyed teaching “Social Entrepreneurship and the Arts.”

As an accomplished violist, Katie has performed and coached nationally and internationally with major professional opera companies and orchestras and served as an Adjunct Professor of Viola at N.C. State University. She is currently principal violist for The Carolina Philharmonic.
