Katherine Pioli

Almost a year after graduating from college, in 2006, Katherine Pioli found use for her English degree while interning for the CATALYST where, like most interns, she cut her teeth on Comings & Goings and other tidbits. Between summers spent fighting wildfires for the U.S. Forest Service, Katherine continued to return to Greta and ask for story assignments. Now, ten years later, Katherine is a full fledged CATALYST family member and the magazine's Assistant Editor.

When Katherine's not planting, weeding or harvesting, teaching middle school-aged children how to hit a baseball and throw a frisbee, or working on her two non-fiction book ideas, she's happily running, skiing or hiking in the mountains.
