Professional Spotlight: Catrin Wigfall

Meet Catrin Wigfall, one of the leaders of the NeW Twin Cities Professional Network. Catrin graduated from Azusa Pacific University in Southern California in 2013. She is a policy fellow at Center of the American Experiment, a state-based think tank in Minnesota. As a former teacher, she uses her experience in the classroom to help influence the research and writing she does on education policy. She enjoys her job because she is able to support today’s educators by providing them with resources that inform and empower their important work with our next generation of leaders.

How has NeW impacted you as a professional woman?
NeW has connected me with like-minded professional women in my community who are eager to make their voices heard and impact state policy for the betterment of all Minnesotans. Thanks to the NeW Professional Network, we have a space to connect and share ideas as well as just have fun socializing! 

What kind of impact do you hope your chapter has in your community?
I believe the NeW Twin Cities Professional Network Chapter will emphasize the importance of respect for diverse ideas and embolden women to have important and challenging conversations about how we can make Minnesota a more prosperous and freer place to live.
