Kathryn Pierce, MPA
Program Officer I
Kathryn Pierce joined MeHAF as Program Officer in December 2016. She currently oversees MeHAF’s Addiction Care and Discretionary and Meeting Support programs, and provides assistance to the foundation’s Strategic Planning Committee. Prior to joining MeHAF, Kathryn worked for three years as a Consultant at TCC Group, which is a social sector consulting firm based in New York City. In this role, Kathryn worked with nonprofit organizations on strategic planning, and supported foundation clients in the design and delivery of capacity building supports for their grantees. Through her work at TCC Group and a previous position at the Catholic Medical Mission Board, which is a faith-based organization that provides long-term, co-operative, medical and development aid to underserved communities around the world, Kathryn has developed a knowledge base around issues related to unequal access to health care. This experience, coupled with her Peace Corps service as a Rural Community Development Volunteer in Costa Rica, has helped Kathryn develop a strong appreciation for the mission and work of MeHAF. Originally from Kennebunk, Maine, Kathryn left the State to attend Fordham University in New York, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and International Political Economy. She continued her education at the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her Master’s in Public Administration at the Fels Institute of Government. After more than a decade away, Kathryn is grateful to be back in Maine and eager to invest her time, skills, and energies in improving the health of people across the state.
