Katherine Troche (she/her)
Program Administrative Support

My first real run-in with astronomy happened by accident at a star party in New York's Central Park with the Amateur Astronomers Association. This very public display of education and engagement lit a spark I didn’t even know existed. 13 years later, I’m a dedicated amateur astronomer turned informal educator.

I spend my time as a NASA Solar System Ambassador, the Vice President of Operations for my local astronomy club, and my current work at ASP involves Program Support for the Eclipse Ambassador Program and NASA Night Sky Network. I love getting out with my telescope(s) and bringing the public that same joy I first encountered all those years ago.
