Path to HAI

Kathryn grew up in the Northern Virginia area and chose to study history because of a particularly engaging high school world history class. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and English. Kathryn’s research interests include public memory and twentieth century American women’s history. Her senior capstone project at VCU addressed the visibility of African American women in public memory through the lens of the legacy of the first board certified African American female doctor in Virginia, Dr. Sarah B. Jones. In her free time, Kathryn enjoys completing a variety of creative projects, including painting and crochet.
