Co-founder & CEO
Having experienced the effects of landing in a detention center at age fifteen, Katie’s passion for supporting hard to reach youth has deep personal roots. After twelve years of working with children and teens in social services, Katie went on to find Villedge, present day Found Village.
She believes in the power of fueling healthy relationships and fostering a holistic approach that meets the individual needs of teens. Through Found Village, she has built a place driven by people who understand the value of a healthy mind, body, and spirit. People who assess the specific needs of each kid, know their individual stories, and teach them self-awareness. This criterion has laid the strong foundation of trust that Found Village is anchored on.
