Katie Richmond

Hi! My name is Katie Richmond and I’m a board member. I’m from northern Virginia, and I’m a junior studying Mechanical Engineering with a certificate in International Engineering. I’m new to Student Government Board this year, but I’m excited to hit the ground running. Outside of class I’m a TA, I do undergraduate research in the Engineering School, and I go to Panther Equity. I’m also a mentor for the Disability Resources and Services mentorship program. In my free time my nose is either in a book or binge watching something, and I can never leave my apartment without headphones. Never hesitate to reach out for any questions or concerns!
