In fall 2019, Kate Lozon came to Hope College from Grace Christian University, where she worked as an admissions advisor. Prior to Grace, Kate completed her master’s degree in higher education at Grand Valley State University (GVSU). She also has worked at GVSU in the Counseling Center, served as an AmeriCorps member for Cherry Health (a health center for low-income patients), and had internships at Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Valley State University, and Hope College. She has a bachelor’s degree from GVSU in Spanish, Latin American studies and non-profit administration. When not at Hope, Kate enjoys spending time with her husband and young kids, reading and being outside.
Kate is very excited to be working with the Step Up students, families and mentors. She hopes to continue to grow the program to support more middle school students from the Holland community and train more mentors. She is very passionate about working with middle school students and believes that Step Up provides an amazing service to the community. Kate had a mentor for many years who helped to shape her into the woman she is today. She can't wait to help others develop the same kind of relationship!
