Kate Richey (she/her) joined Brandeis in September 2022 and is thrilled to be a part of the PARC community. Kate's background is in mental health counseling, and she has worked in sexual violence prevention and response in higher education for the last 10 years. As an advocate, Kate works to center the survivor experience and support students in an empathic, collaborative and non-judgmental way. As a preventionist, she seeks to meet community members where they are in their understanding of sexual and relationship violence, and she hopes to help everyone see how they can make a difference in the anti-violence movement. Outside of Brandeis, Kate spends time with her family and enjoys reading, listening to podcasts, and getting together with friends.
