Kathryn Allen, a Writer, is participating in her second mission as a HOPE volunteer, first serving onboard the USNS Mercy in Indonesia last year. Kathryn works for an agency in Troy, New York that serves people living in poverty, victims of domestic violence, children with developmental delays and adults with mental illness. While aboard the USNS Comfort, Kathryn is volunteering as the Public Affairs Officer in Jamaica and Peru and will join the mission again later on this summer.
