Katelyn was born and raised in West Texas. She moved to Connecticut in 2010 in search of opportunities that would allow her to explore queer community building and the nonprofit world. She is pursuing a degree in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and has served as a workshop facilitator in a Violence Against Women Prevention Program.
As Program Coordinator, she manages new and existing programs, TCC's volunteer corps and internship program, marketing and social media, and supports executive staff with development and special events planning. Along with her responsibilities as a staff member, she is currently co-facilitating TCC's OutSpoken, one of Connecticut's longest-run LGBTQ youth groups.
