Katrina was born and raised in Haverhill, MA. She is a wife, mother, educator, and business owner who brings her deep faith and experience as a member of a minoritized community demographic to her campaign for Haverhill City Council.

Kat also is the Founder and Curator of COCO Brown, a cultural healing center and co-working space in Haverhill that uses art, music, storytelling and movement to strengthen community relationships and encourage racial, social, and economic equity.
Kat is running for City Council to ensure that every resident of Haverhill is included in the decisions that will affect their futures. Haverhill is a rapidly evolving community consisting of many diverse backgrounds and unique demographic challenges. Her priorities include supporting small businesses, appropriate resourcing of public safety needs, and housing development that meets the needs of residents at all income levels.
