Hello! My name is Katherine Kitchens (she/her). I'm a Dallas native and an advanced MSW student, concentrating in Community and Administrative Practice (CAP). Spring 2022 is my fourth semester to serve as a GSL. I have a BA in Politics and had the incredible opportunity to work as a middle school teacher in an urban Latinx community. This background contributed to my interest in macro social work. I'm currently a Graduate Research Assistant and am doing an advanced field placement as a legislative intern in Texas House District 105. After completing my MSW in August 2022, I hope to continue in UTA's doctoral program, researching place-based indicators of health disparities and advocating for policy change.
I look forward to serving my constituents as a Graduate Student Leader and working together to strengthen our community by building connections in the School of Social Work.
