Kat has been part of the Koreo team since 2014 and has worked on Charityworks from the very first day she joined.

She is a firm believer that everyone has the capacity to achieve their personal and professional development goals, with the right support, and is really looking forward to working with this year’s trainees to enable them to do just that.
