Title: Communications and Outreach Manager
Originally from Spokane, Washington, Katelen moved to Seattle and joined the team at Pride Foundation in 2013. Previously, she worked as an intake counselor and liaison with LGBTQ youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in Portland, OR. After receiving her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Portland, Katelen taught English in South Korea for 18 months and then returned to Spokane where she worked to support women and children living in transitional housing. Katelen went on to receive her Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California with a focus on organizational development and corporate social responsibility.
When she’s not crafting communications or meeting with amazing Pride Foundation supporters, you can find her in the woods, swinging in a riverside hammock with a novel and a strong cup of french press coffee.
