GLISA Proudly Presents...

Your GLISA 2016 - 2017 Officers!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Katrina Corral, your 2016-2017 GLISA president. For the past few months, I've been fortunate enough to work with five dedicated individuals aimed at creating a rewarding and fulfilling organization for all GLISA members. There are many things in store for the future, but in the meantime read on to meet the team!

Katrina spent the early part of her career working in higher education with a specialty in fundraising and while she is originally from Los Angeles, California she now resides in the lively city of Austin, Texas with her husband and furry feline, Katara. When Katrina doesn't have her nose buried in books she continues to work on her other dream of becoming a children's book illustrator.
