Katie joined the Girls Empowerment Workshop in 2016 as a grant writer and is currently training to be a workshop facilitator. She has had the privilege of working with youth and teens for over a decade as a camp counselor, sports coach, yoga teacher, and wilderness guide. It is her love of wilderness that Katie is most excited to share with the girls in her role as Camping Director for TGEW. Every summer Katie leads backpacking trips for teens in the Eastern Sierra; focusing on natural history, health, and mindfulness. Katie trained with the Art of Yoga Project, an organization that seeks to rehabilitate teenage girls in the juvenile justice system by teaching them art, yoga, and journaling. Combining wilderness experiences with yoga to empower teens is Katie’s passion, and The Girls Empowerment Workshop is overjoyed to have her on our Team.
