Having served as a volunteer at the Trust since 2014, Kate officially joined our team in 2020 as Associate Executive Director and later transitioned to the role of Executive Director in 2021. Kate comes to us with an extensive background in nonprofit management, including serving as the Shelter Services Coordinator at Sojourner Center and the Senior Program Director and Interim Executive Director at Philadelphia Physicians for Social Responsibility. Additionally, she holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from Colgate University and a master's degree in nonprofit leadership from the University of Pennsylvania. As Executive Director, Kate is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day management of the Trust and planning for its successful future. Outside of the office, she spends plenty of time outdoors, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, reading, and spending time with her husband and three daughters on their small farm.
We first met Julie in 2013 when she began to serve the Trust as an outside finance consultant and advisor. Now we are fortunate to welcome her back in the Associate Executive Director role. Julie was raised in Chicago, attended Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana, and began her career as a CPA with a global accounting firm. She has since worked for a diverse array of for-profit and non-profit organizations in financial accounting, reporting, administration, and strategy. In addition to being an active volunteer in the local community, Julie has served on several boards and committees and enjoys playing tennis, gardening, and spending time with her husband and two grown children.
