Kathryn has a passion for travel, language, exploration and cultural exchange. (According to her dad, the first time she was on an airplane, age seven, she laughed and laughed during takeoff. That glee hasn’t really diminished since then.) In addition to Ireland, she’s worked in Switzerland, Montenegro, Brazil and the UK; volunteer work has taken her to Spain and Mali, West Africa.
