Katherine Aspell, MPPAssociate
Katie contributes to a range of GPG planning, stakeholder engagement, and research projects. She synthesizes and presents information for diverse audiences and performs high-quality research and analysis in support of client projects and initiatives, particularly in the fields of early learning, interpersonal violence, and workforce readiness. While a graduate student at the UC Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy, her studies bridged the gap between intersectional government policies and the disadvantaged communities they hope to serve. Prior to GPG, Katie’s work included nonprofit program management, college access, and program creation.
