Katri works in international development, and is a mom of four children. She is driven in her work to ensure that all people can receive quality healthcare, gender equality becomes a reality, and organisations working in international development leverage the power of partnerships for impact.

In July 2020, Katri founded Partners for Impact (PFI), a platform for best practices and key findings from research for international development organisations interested in improving their work on partnerships.


Katri has worked in international development for over 15 years, most recently at the World Bank, where she headed External Relations for the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF) and worked in External Relations at the World Bank’s office for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. She previously worked at Save the Children, a non-governmental organisation that works in 120 countries, where she headed global advocacy, policy and campaigning.


Katri lives in Berlin/Germany, and is Finnish by nationality. She is a graduate from the London School of Economics (Master in International Relations), the Hertie School (Master in Public Policy), and the University of York (Bachelor in Economics and Politics).
