Kate Larson, Office Coordinator & Chaplain's Assistant kate@stfrancisuw.org

Kate manages the SFH office, building maintenance, and event scheduling. You can find her in the office on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1-5 PM. A freelance writer and aspiring Midwesterner, Kate is always looking for recommendations for new places to explore in and around Madison. More about Kate.

Program Intern Mckenzie Kramer

Mckenzie Kramer, Program Intern

Mckenzie is our program intern. She is interested in bringing people together for meaningful conversations, fun adventures, music-making, and getting to know people individually. Originally a West-Coaster, Mckenzie enjoys good coffee and beautiful places, especially with close friends and family. While she has a background in music, she also has a passion for creative writing, philosophy and theology, and always finds much fun in Lindy Hop, as well as hoppy beers. She and her husband Owen are excited to be a part of the St. Francis House community this year. More about Mckenzie.

House Fellow Loren Lock

Loren Lock, House Fellow

Realizing she was lackluster at adulting, Loren decided to go back to school and will begin a master of population health degree this year. When she's not driving her trusty Buick LeSabre to see family around the state or visiting her best friends (who happen to live everywhere but Wisconsin), she’s probably biking around the East Side or stalking the humane society website for cute doggos.
