Katy Nowoswiat

Director of Estate and Gift Planning

Regions covered: Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont


Katy was first hired at the American Cancer Society as a Relay for Life Community Manager. She was responsible for four community events and built lasting relationships with many volunteers, many of whom she is still in touch with today. After three years in the Community Manager role, Katy transitioned to the Cancer Control team where she began her most recent role as a Program Manager, Mission Delivery. Katy furthered relationships with dozens of mission volunteers and enjoyed working with local cancer centers to help meet their program needs. She recently helped to sign on the first hotel in New Hampshire to the Hotel Partners Program. Katy holds a deep passion for our mission as she first connected with the American Cancer Society through volunteering on her University’s Relay for Life committee. She graduated from Clark University where she received both her BA and MBA. She has also served as a member of the former New England College Advisory Committee for Relay for Life.

In her spare time Katy enjoys running (she has completed 2 Boston Marathons), cooking, reading (particularly historical fiction), and spending time with her family and friends. Katy is conversationally fluent in Spanish and enjoys traveling, particularly to Spain where she had the pleasure of studying abroad while an undergrad. Katy currently resides in Lowell with her boyfriend, Jack.
