Statewide Sexual and Domestic Violence Coalition Recognizes Leaders and Innovators in the Sexual and Domestic Violence Field

Richmond, VA – The Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (Action Alliance), Virginia’s leading voice on sexual and intimate partner violence, announces 8 recipients of the 2017 Catalyst Awards. The Catalyst Awards encompass superior work across eight different categories, including both sexual and domestic violence work, and apply to program staff, community leaders, volunteers, and allied professionals.

The group of honorees has been selected for their innovative and outstanding contributions to the field. “We are absolutely delighted to honor these individuals for their exceptional and inspiring work on behalf of survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence and for their extraordinary contributions to the field of sexual and domestic violence,” Action Alliance Executive Director Kristi VanAudenhove said.

Katie is being honored with the Purple Ribbon Award for working specifically in the field of domestic violence and demonstrating exemplary commitment to restoring power and hope to victims who have experienced domestic violence through the provision of direct client services. Katie excels in advocacy work by promoting empowerment which fosters healing.

Katie’s nominator for the Purple Ribbon Award states, “Katie has been a catalyst for domestic violence in the legal community. She has been innovative in her approach with clients and continues to learn different techniques and approaches that fit best with the individual client. Katie is the perfect combination of professional and warmth.”
