Kate Merrigan

UNITY Program Coordinator
email: kmerrigan@nbccoalition.org

Kate, a proud North Adams native, has been working in the Coalition’s UNITY programs since 2005.  She feels honored and lucky to have a job that allows her to explore her dual passions for youth empowerment and engaging people in community change.  When she’s not at work, Kate can be found spending time at local coffee shops with her father, volunteering with the New Hampshire Teen Institute, trying to make the perfect cupcake, working on plays with Mill City Productions, and talking endlessly about Battlestar Galactica.  Kate, who holds a BA in American Studies/ Gender Studies from Marlboro College, previously worked as a counselor at Tapestry Health Family Planning (you might also recognize her from her years cooking and wise cracking behind the counter at the Appalachian Bean Cafe).
