Family & Medical Outreach Coordinator
Katie is a NJ native, growing up in Plainsboro. She graduated from Montclair State University with a B.A. in Sociology. Her mom and dad still reside in the house she grew up in. She also has an older sister that lives in California and is getting married next year. Katie was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome over 2 decades ago, and knew from a very young age she wanted to help others with this disorder. In her spare time, Katie enjoys spending time with her friends and family, diving headfirst into anything psychology and supernatural related, as well as doing anything that elicits her creativity.
Alina Lawas Osborn
Alina earned a B.S. in Biology at The College of New Jersey in 2019. Her academic focus was on ecological research as well as equity and advocacy through a self-designed internship with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (now the Division of Inclusive Excellence). In her current position at NJCTS, she integrates her two passions of biology and social equity. Her lived experience as a queer person of color with TS, coupled with her academic study of social structures and power dynamics, allows her to analyze and approach matters through multiple lenses- from individual all the way to systemic. Her background in biology gives her a research-driven approach to problem solving and yields creative and effective solutions.
Alina has recently reached a point in her life that in addition to managing her TS, she is (usually) able to embrace it and love it as an essential part of who she is. She hopes to create programming to allow others with TS to have this same opportunity to live their best, unbridled lives.
