Meet Katherine

Katherine AndersonKatherine Halberstadt Anderson is a freelance writer, editor, and communications consultant with a passion for promoting the awareness, acceptance, and inclusion of people with disabilities across every aspect of society. A Wheaton grad, Katherine serves alongside the couple’s 20-year-old son, Sam as an ambassador for the National Down Syndrome Society, and manages the blog they founded together, called "In My Own Words: People with Down Syndome." 

Katherine says, "The Lord gave my husband and I the gift of a son with Down syndrome, and we look forward to all the ways He plans to use our son, and this Center, for His glory. We’re excited to witness how the Center will improve the lives of those affected by disability, as well as how it will promote and strengthen communities where everyone not only belongs, but flourishes."
