Kathrine Whelan She/her

Kathrine brings her diverse history in consumer services 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 removed from her family home. She was sent to live in a group home, where she saw firsthand what can happen to children whose parents don’t have the resources to care for them. Witnessing these devastating results altered the course of her life and led her to choose adoption for her son.

She has spent the past twenty years brightening the lives of people and animals through her work in the restaurant industry, volunteering for various causes, and founding a dog training company which specializes in helping challenging dogs. She was searching for a way to make a broader impact, which led her to Binti. She is honored and humbled for the opportunity to aid in Binti’s mission – ensuring every child has a safe and loving home.

In her free time, you can find her digging in the garden, making music, practicing Spanish, and traveling.
