KATRINA WILLIAMS

Katrina has been involved with RCIG since the early days and has been profoundly impacted by working with the athletes and families at RCIG. After graduating with her degree in occupational therapy, Katrina was determined to find employment where she could continue to serve as an OT with a community mindset. That has led her to work in a remote part of Alaska as part of a therapy team at a small medical facility. While she misses RCIG, she enjoys being part of a community where she can make a difference. Katrina spends her free time rock climbing, watching countless hours of TV, playing volleyball, and exploring her new home state.
