Director of Programs – Dreams
Growing up with an amazing mom who worked in the nonprofit field, volunteering, caring about others, and believing in endless possibilities come naturally to Katrina! Katrina’s knack for building relationships and connecting people with resources is what attracted her to Social Work. After receiving her master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Nebraska Omaha, Katrina’s passion for helping her community sparked opportunities for her to support several nonprofit organizations throughout Omaha in various capacities. Katrina has worn many hats (from nonprofit administrator to farmer’s market manager!) throughout her career, and along the way she has developed an affinity for working with seniors. Having lost a close family member to cancer, Katrina knows how precious the time after receiving a diagnosis is, and she is extremely grateful for the many “bright spots” she shared with her loved one during their cancer fight. As the Director of Programs – Dreams, Katrina is honored to be able to help seniors living with terminal illness and their families find “bright spots” and create lasting cherished memories.
Katrina and her husband Mark live in Omaha with their three children, Noelle, Sam, and Max. The kids keep her busy, and Katrina credits her limitless energy to the inspiration she draws from the amazing people around her (and to plenty of coffee!). When she’s not helping seniors’ dreams come true, Katrina loves to spend time with her family, run, cook, and help friends find their dream jobs, houses, and romantic partners! Katrina serves on the Board of Directors for the Blade 5K, a local nonprofit organization that helps adaptive athletes live active lifestyles.
