Katrina graduated with BA in International Affairs and a BS Psychology with a minor in Economics. She joined Ethical Reasoning in Action three years ago and quickly became very passionate about helping her peers understand and use the 8KQ. Today, she works with students in the classroom as a TA for Dr. Hawk's Ethical Reasoning class and as the Ethical Reasoning Engagement Fellow (in addition to her work as a facilitator for the Ethical Reasoning Educators). In addition to her work on campus, Katrina has competed in two Ethics Bowl competitions as well as an International Business Ethics Case Competition at various colleges and universities across the U.S. In the future, Katrina wants to be a professor. She thinks the 8KQ are an important tool to have and use every day and hopes to continue to teach students about it in the future.
