Katie came to Thompson Markward Hall first as a resident when she moved to Washington, DC before joining the staff as Assistant Director years later. In her time at TMH Katie has worked to provide its residents with programs relevant to the young women who reside at the hall. Such programs have included financial literacy seminars, wellness programs and service projects through a variety of community partners.

Outside of work, Katie is involved in several women’s development organizations such as the United Women in Business Foundation where she serves as Vice President of Community Relations.

Resident Leaders
We have a staff of six resident leaders who act as ambassadors for the residents and address immediate resident concerns. Resident leaders hold nightly office hours as well as house inspections to ensure that TMH remains safe and comfortable to all residents.

TMH offers 24-hour front desk service which allows residents to come and go as they please. You won’t need to worry about getting locked out because there will always be an attendant to let you in, no matter what time of day. The front desk staff is equipped to deal with resident concerns at any time of day or night. The front desk will be your go-to resource for all things TMH.
