Katie Garcia Martinez
Katie joined the Buddy Program as a Bilingual Case Manager in September 2021. She grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley and her family has been in this community for the past twenty years. Her family is originally from El Salvador and Spanish was her first language. After finishing high school, she attended the University of Colorado Boulder where she pursued a degree in Political Science and Ethnic Studies. Katie has always had a passion for Social Justice and wants to be involved with the communities she is a part of. During her undergraduate experience, she worked with first generation students and helped them navigate their academics and advocate for themselves. In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time with her family and watching scary movies that will no doubt give her nightmares.
