Katherine Buckingham

Medical Programs Coordinator - Tena, Ecuador

Katherine is excited to join the Timmy team as the Medical Programs Coordinator in Tena. Before coming to Timmy, Katherine was in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic where she worked in early child development and literacy education for 3 years.  As an education volunteer, Katherine became interested in the connection between child development and healthy environments in the school and home, which led her to an interest in working in public health.

After translating for several medical brigades, Katherine learned there was a great need for responsible and stable medical brigades that worked with local medical institutions to provide reliable patient care and follow-up.  She is honored to be a part of Timmy’s team and work with an organization that is dedicated to promoting sustainable health programs.
