About Una Huang

She studied Medical Anthropology and Evolutionary Biology for her bachelor's degree and Bioethics for her master's degree. She is a self-professed nerd and enjoys reading, playing Dungeons & Dragons and drinking large quantities of tea.

About Catie Murphy
Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Catie graduated in 2017 from Richmond, the American International University in London with a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing. Following her graduation, she worked as a marketing and communications associate at Education Through Music in New York City. After a year in New York, she embarked on a year-long expedition to New Zealand.

She has been visiting Maine since she was a child, and she is excited to be part of the Resilience Corps to help the Greater Portland Region become more adaptable to the challenges it faces.
