After a decade of managing projects for state government, nonprofits, and freelance clients, Kaitlin Throgmorton knew she wanted to learn how to make information work. In 2018, she began her graduate studies in library and information science at the University of Washington in Seattle. She anticipates graduating with her master's degree (MLIS) in June 2020.

While at UW's iSchool, she's focused on open data, data curation, and digital equity. She currently works as a research assistant for the Open Data Literacy project.
