Katrina is one of the newest members of our coalition team. She is in charge of researching and providing new trainings for the teachers to stay up on the latest drug and alcohol trends. Previously the receptionist, in her one year of service she has proven to be a valuable asset to the team, providing fun, fresh ideas and a great sense of humor. She is also in charge of our social media presence for all of our programs.

When she isn't dedicating her time to our cause, you can find her planning out her next trip to Epcot or gushing about her favorite video games. And always ask her about her cats. She loves to talk about them and show them off to anyone willing to spare five minutes.

James Shiver
Coalition Assistant & Social Norms Marketing Coordinator

James serves as the Social Norms Marketing Coordinator and coalition assistant. Since 2016, he has been involved with InnerAct Alliance as a summer intern, and before then as a member of UthMpact. His love of learning and education drive James to make a positive impact on Polk County’s students. When he is not working, James is a voracious reader and loves to learn about the origins of words, but don’t ask him about that unless you have an hour or two to kill.
