Kat Rawhouser is our newest team member as of March 2018! She is a California native, born in the Bay Area and raised in the central San Joaquin Valley in a small town south of Stockton. She attended school at the University of the Pacific and graduated in 2013 with a B.S. in Geology.
After graduating she joined the Peace Corps and served for two years in Paraguay as an Environmental Education Volunteer in the town of Tobati in the Cordillera Department about three hours by bus northeast of the capital of Asunción. Her duties as a Peace Corps Volunteer included the planning and execution of projects, recruiting and managing local volunteers, and teaching at the K-12 level.
Following Kat's service in the U.S. Peace Corps she took a position at a state coal museum and historic site in northeastern Pennsylvania, near Scranton whereThe Office is filmed, named Eckley Miners’ Village. There she worked in a variety of roles including fund development, volunteer programs, special events and the sites’ educational offerings.
After a year in the northeast Kat decided to seek employment closer to home and has been working for the last year at the Child Abuse Prevention Center in Sacramento planning, developing and implementing their AmeriCorps VISTA program. VISTA is a one of several federal AmeriCorps volunteer programs nationally administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Now, as she embarks on a new chapter, Kat is very excited to join the Stewards Staff as the Volunteer Programs Manager and looks forward to meeting and working with all of you!
