She works as an administrative assistant to the members of the board, helping to organize and expedite SATYA’s marketing, promotion and fundraising events. Katie is also a Yoga Alliance 200 hr RYT and WPA certified PaddleYoga instructor. She is studying for a M.S. in Holistic Nutrition from the American College of Healthcare Sciences and runs her SUP Yoga business, Koan Wellness in York, Maine.
