KATHERINE KOUOT BIO

Katherine Kouot joined Heart of Los Angeles in June of 2016 as the College Success Director. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Katherine developed a love for education, mentorship, and social justice. She completed her Bachelor's degree in English Literature and French at the University of Southern California. Through her experiences organizing in student activist spaces and serving as a tutor and mentor for several college access programs, Katherine rediscovered her identity as a first-generation, student of color. She truly believes that college is a transformative experience that offers students the opportunity to discover their passions, strengths, assets, and, most importantly, their individual journey towards life success. Katherine now utilizes her background in education and college access to support students in making the successful transition from high school to college and then from college to career and life success.

KEVIN FRANCO BIO

Kevin is transforming the way we think about the college to career pipeline for historically underrepresented students by measuring outcomes of success that are rooted on diversity and inclusion efforts in educational contexts and workplace settings. He critically analyzes educational issues through various lenses that focus on the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality. With over five years of work experience, Kevin has worked in the college access and college success field assisting a spectrum of low-income, first-generation college students with their educational pursuits. Kevin has conducted mixed methods research assessments at Occidental College and with the RAND Corporation, working on policy initiatives such as the Community Schools and the Connections to Care Initiatives in New York City. He uses research and his knowledge on social justice pedagogy to facilitate change on how we view college success and diversity & inclusion efforts in the workforce.
