About Katia Castillo

Katia Castillo, originally from Nicaragua, is an architect by training and a project management by practice.  

Moved by the idea of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, she joined Habitat for Humanity Nicaragua’s first volunteer team. That decision led to a 10-year journey of Volunteer and Project management in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Trinidad & Tobago. 

She speaks English and Spanish, and some of her skills include organization, budget, and staff management. Additionally, Katia is a people person by default and easy-going, while proactively managing details and thinking through problems to arrive at creative solutions.  

Katia is also well-traveled, so she can easily connect to the culture and traditions of new places; she enjoys learning about the rich diversity of people. She eagerly joined the Cool team due to its mission; for the ability to focus on building bridges between the American mainstream and Latino cultures, and the opportunity to bring together her skill set while connecting the world.
