Work Highlights

Researched housing policies readily available to address issues in Buffalo, NY.

Conducted stakeholder interviews to assess the advocacy space attached to those policies.

Created reports detailing pertinent policies including suggestions on organizing strategy for Habitat.

Developed timelines and budgets for suggested initiatives.

 

Summer Takeaway

I don't think I can have a career in which I’m not serving the public good. The High Road meant so much to me in part because I got to get up every day and feel like I was doing something meaningful.

 

Supervisor Quote

Ketchel’s passion, tenacity, thoughtfulness, and sense of justice has made her not just a great fit with our organization or the perfect person to help develop our advocacy platform, but an inspiration. Ketchel was a breath of fresh air to everyone who has had the great fortune to work with her. She has represented Habitat Buffalo and our mission with grace, compassion, and wisdom. Her ability to identify and research complex issues and then contextualize and synthesize them while making practical recommendations for our affiliate has been remarkable. We appreciate everything she has done to help teach us and to help Habitat Buffalo continue to grow and serve more people in our community. THANK YOU KETCHEL!
