My name is Katja Olcott, and I am an Operations Associate with CAF America. I joined CAF America in November of 2022. I support the Administration and Operations team in maintaining the daily function of CAF America. I have a particular focus on processing Donor Advised Gifts (DAGs), assisting with donor and charity inquiries, and tracking our grants going to India and various countries that we grant to through our Expedite Program.
Before joining CAF America, I worked on a political campaign for Montgomery County Executive in the 2022 election cycle. In 2021, I graduated from two universities in their joint degree program: the University of St. Andrews and the College of William and Mary. I received a joint B.A. in International Relations (International Honours) from these institutions.
In my free time, I love cooking new recipes, guessing the winners of reality TV game shows, and reading dialogue-heavy books.
