Katie McClave is a born and bred Midwesterner. A Kansas girl at heart, she attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, where she graduated in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology and Spanish and a minor in Political Science. Since graduating, she has served as a long term volunteer in various capacities, first with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Harlem as Tenant Organizer, and second as an elementary ESL and Art teacher with the Olancho Aid Foundation in Juticalpa, Olancho, Honduras. Each experience brought community, growth, and lots of adventure. Katie is a lover of languages and culture and is excited to continue her journey in Honduras, this time in Cofradia, as the Program Administrator at SMBS. She is looking forward to seeing more of the beautiful country she’s grown to love, and getting to know her new community. Katie cherishes time spent with others and is looking forward to building relationships with students, parents, and fellow volunteers this year. She also loves dancing, McDonald’s French fries, dinosaurs, reading, and traveling wherever life takes her.
