Mary Kate (MK) is passionate about building data systems and operations that accelerate organizational success and promote internal and external collaboration. As Deputy Director, MK develops product roadmaps to manage the iterative development of data systems and data collection methods based on close collaboration with team members across departments and structured user feedback. MK particularly enjoys the creative freedom that comes with designing and building MVP’s databases and systems. As an avid language learner (and near polyglot!) MK has found similar interest in translating, analyzing and visualizing incoming data for the different MVP departments. The possibilities for MVP’s data can sometimes feel infinite, but MK thrives around presenting data in useful ways to then invite others to celebrate MVP partners’ tremendous qualitative and quantitative accomplishments.
MK received her B.A. in Global Studies with a minor in International Relations from LIU Global College. MK comes with a decade of experience in supporting local grassroots organizations across the globe with behind the scenes operational support. Creating art, playing violin, and scrapbooking recent adventures are the fuel to her fire.
