Educational Background

B.A. Anthropology, University of Calgary, 2017


Originally from Calgary, Kathryn spent a couple years studying, living, and travelling across Northern Europe while completing her degree. Favourite memories include volunteering with refugee communities, sailing in icy autumn lakes, mentoring ESL learners in creative writing, singing with foreign language choirs, and trying every kind of cinnamon bun! During this time, they also completed a research thesis in Sámi relational spirituality & healing practices, which was presented at the Research in Religious Studies conference held at the University of Lethbridge.

Through their experiences with international communities both at home and abroad, Kathryn discovered a passion for supporting others in seeking new perspectives on the world. This led her to volunteer and later work at UCalgary International, where they have now been an advisor for 6 years. Kathryn is enthusiastic about connecting with diverse student groups and breaking down barriers. 


International experience: studied at Örebro University (Sweden) and the University of Helsinki (Finland)
