Katie Butler

Research & Event Volunteer

Our volunteer, Kathleen Butler, is a second-year honors student studying Neuroscience and Music Industry at UCLA. She is fascinated with the interplay of music and learning and the way music interacts with different neurodegenerative disorders. Kathleen also volunteers with The Institute for Music and Brain Science, sings in a community service based music education acappella group YOUTHPhonics, and is among UCLA's first campus representatives for the student musician based streaming platform Quadio. She owes her love of music to her father, Ellis Butler, who has continued to inspire her to bring the joy of music into all facets of her life. She hopes to continue to combine her greatest interests and passions of neurological research and music in her future studies and is ecstatic to be a part of the Music Mends Minds team.
