Meet Mary Kate! Mary Kate is one of our super awesome first-year student workers in the Admission’s Office.
Mary Kate is originally from Fremont, NE – a small town outside of Omaha. This past summer Mary Kate was enjoying a few free months of freedom in between her undergraduate studies in Political Science at Northwest Missouri State University and starting the MA in International Development program at Korbel. Actually, Mary Kate is in the PCMI (Peace Corps Masters International) Program. Mary Kate is interested in studying WASH, public health and nutrition. She picked Korbel for her graduate studies, because she liked that the school offers a flexible and practical curriculum and numerous resources to support its students.
When Mary Kate isn’t hittin’ the books she can be found baking in her itty bitty kitchen, singing show tunes and running around Wash Park (mostly to look at all the dogs).
Fun Fact about Mary Kate: she spent a semester studying abroad in Ghana, and she cannot wait to one day return!
