Katie Mahoney joined Close Concerns in 2020 after graduating from Williams College with a major in Chemistry and a concentration in Public Health. As an undergraduate, Katie researched novel B-cell lymphoma drugs at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, as well as best advance care planning practices in hospice organizations at the UCSF School of Medicine. Outside of her research, Katie was involved in the Rape and Sexual Assault Network, which supports survivors of sexual assault on campus, worked as a tutor in chemistry and biology, and mentored high-achieving, low-income high school students throughout the college application process as a Matriculate advising fellow. As a senior, Katie founded the Williams Appreciates Staff club to foster gratitude for staff and stronger student-staff relationships. In her free time, Katie enjoys hiking, cooking, doing yoga, and listening to podcasts.
