In this week's blog post and latest in our "Stars of Keystone" series, we're excited to introduce the newest member of the Keystone Customer Support Team! She's been with us since early July, and we are already benefiting from her contributions to our support services. So, please join us in welcoming Katharina!

Basic Stats:

Name of Staff Member: Katharina Stevens

Year Hired: 2022

Current Job Title: Customer Support Specialist

Getting to Know You Q&A:

Q: What are you most excited about / looking forward to as a new KLAS customer support specialist?

A: I think reading and access to books is very important. In America we are blessed with an over abundance of resources though we don’t always realize it. I’m excited to be a small part in promoting and improving access to reading materials.

Q: What did you do before working for Keystone?

A: I was the school librarian at an international school in East Africa for nine years. The only wildlife I saw in my yard were geckos, birds and stray cats but coworkers had monkeys that would visit.

Q: What are your hobbies outside of work?

A: Reading, traveling, board games and being an aunt.

Q: If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go?

A: New Zealand & Australia and then somewhere in South America so I can say I’ve been to all continents (except Antarctica).

Q: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

A: While in East Africa my housemate and I found two puppies in the field across the street. The mama was the neighborhood stray so we ended up taking the puppies. Roo and Stoney (named after a Ugandan ginger soda) needed a bath every day for a month to get them clean and bug free.

Two brown short-hair puppies sit on a pile of towels in a small child's plastic pool. They have floppy ears and black snouts.   One of the puppies from the previous photo is being held in a bucket by two hands. The puppy is sopping wet and looking plaintively up at the person bathing it.
