Educational Background

BA Anthropology, University of Calgary, 2017


Originally from Calgary, Kathryn spent a couple years studying, living, and travelling across Northern Europe while completing their degree. Favourite memories include volunteering with refugee communities, sailing in icy autumn lakes, mentoring ESL learners in creative writing, singing with Swedish choirs, hiking along a chain of ancient burial mounds, and learning how to make jam! During this time, she also completed a thesis on 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 them to volunteer and later work at UCalgary International, where she has now been an advisor for 7 years. Kathryn is enthusiastic about connecting with diverse student groups and improving access to international programs.


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

Languages spoken: English, Swedish
