As a child, Kathrine Mancuso grew up around the military in the United States and overseas, cementing her patriotism as well as an interest in languages and foreign cultures. Kathrine’s drive to support and serve her country is rooted in these experiences as daughter of an officer in the U.S. Army.
Her support for country has blossomed even more due to the model of honor and dedication provided by her husband, Staff Sergeant Jeremiah Pittman. His valor in the face of adversity and his character as a soldier and as a father have led Kathrine to embrace a path of service for herself as well.
For the past several years, Kathrine has pursued an interest in psychology, applying behavior modification to dogs and owners as a job and as a volunteer for nonprofit organizations. Mother to three children, she is ready to make the life-defining move to commit to a future in civil service.
To do so, Kathrine is pursuing a Master of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service under the national security and diplomacy track at Texas A&M University. After which, she plans to enter into the field of national security.
