Born in Bogota, Colombia, Capt. Angela Katson’s family immigrated to the U.S. when she was a young girl, and she grew up in New Rochelle, New York. She joined the Navy as an undesignated seaman in 1982 and reported to USS Point Loma (AGDS 02). After becoming a naturalized citizen and completing her degree at the University of San Diego, she commissioned as an officer and earned her surface warfare officer qualification while stationed aboard USS Acadia (AD 42). Katson then became a human resources officer and spent the next three decades helping others follow and achieve their dreams. She served as the Navy diversity and inclusion officer, the OPNAV education strategy and policy branch head, and as the branch head, enlisted plans and policy and deputy director, military personnel plans and policy. She is an ultra-marathoner who runs for relaxation and has a goal to run at least one 100-mile race.
