Julia Chester Emery Intern
My name is Katelyn Kenney, and I’m the Julia Chester Emery intern for 2017-2018. I also get to work with Missional Voices as part of my internship. I live in Houston, Texas as a member of the Texas Episcopal Service Corps, but Houston (and the suburbs to the southeast) is also where I’ve grown up my whole life. I even graduated from the University of Houston! And if you ask me, anytime spent with good food and my two cats, Leo and Rascal, is time well spent.
