Kate Haynie joined the Lee Institute in June 2017 as a Project Coordinator.
Prior to joining the Lee Institute team, Kate served as an intern for two nonprofit organizations; The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) and Meals On Wheels Atlanta. Kate held two positions within The Ronald McDonald House, one in Dublin, Ireland as an Office Intern and the other in Columbia, SC as the Family Room Intern. At both the RMH in Dublin and RMH in Columbia, Kate helped create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. In addition, Kate worked with Meals On Wheels Atlanta as the Special Events Intern. There, she assisted in planning and implementing several fundraising events to support senior independence through meals, shelter, education and community.
Kate is looking forward to expanding her knowledge of the nonprofit sector through her role at the Lee Institute. Her experiences and collegiate leadership roles prior to her job as Project Coordinator have led Kate to pursue a career in non-profits.
Kate is native of Charlotte, North Carolina, and graduated from the University of South Carolina, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations and a minor in business administration.
