Catherine Klene (she/her) joined the AYF team in April 2020. She was a magazine writer and editor for more than 10 years before she decided to explore how she could use her skills in the nonprofit space. She was drawn to the AYF’s mission of helping youth discover their own best selves and live balanced lives. She is thrilled to be part of such a welcoming, mission-driven community.
Catherine graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2010 with bachelor’s degrees in mass communications and English language and literature. She lives in St. Louis with her husband, dog, and cat.
