Kathrine Whelan She/her

Kathrine brings her diverse history in service and education to the Customer Support team, as well as her special connection to the world of adoption. As a young teenager, she was confronted with an unplanned pregnancy and sent to live in a group home. There, she saw firsthand what can happen when parents don’t have the resources to care for their children. This experience led her to choose adoption for her son, and altered the course of her life.

She has spent the past twenty years brightening the lives of people and animals through her work in hospitality, volunteering for various causes, and founding a dog training company that specializes in helping challenging dogs. While searching for a way to make a broader impact, she discovered Binti and felt an immediate connection. She is honored and humbled to aid in Binti’s vision of ensuring every child has a safe and loving home.

Outside work, you can find her hiking, digging in the garden, or making music. She lives in Georgia with her husband, three dogs, and three cats.
