Hill Country Alliance: Meet Executive Director Katherine Romans

Once again the Hill Country Alliance (HCA) is hosting their spring Hill Country Living FESTIVAL + Rainwater Revival (April 4, 2020). And their fifteenth anniversary looms, all of which makes for a great excuse to sit down with the nonprofit’s executive director, Katherine Romans.

The goal? To learn more about this important organization as well as Romans’ personal commitment to it.

Can you tell us what led you to join HCA as a staff member?

It was a chance connection that led me to HCA.

It was the summer of 2013 and I had recently moved to Austin with my husband, who was starting his PhD studies at the UT Department of Geography.

I was spending a lot of time looking at job boards for positions focused on natural resources, and I stumbled across a posting for a Landowner Outreach Manager with the Hill Country Alliance. It sounded like a great opportunity-working with landowners to steward the creeks and rivers of the Hill Country.
