Katelyn joined the YOOP Team in the spring of 2017 after graduating from George Fox University with her Bachelors in Social Work. Katelyn has worked with many different populations from those who are houseless to people who have gone through any form of domestic violence. It was her work at a Juvenile Detention center that led her to a passion of working with at-risk youth. If she has the chance to make a positive difference in the moment of another person’s life, her hope is that it will continue to spread.
