Katie Cox, board secretary

Katie (She/Her/Hers) identifies as a white, cisgender, queer, fat, femme. In her daily life, she orchestrates both the day-to-day and big picture as the Operations Director for Equi Institute, a bustling Trans & Queer integrative health clinic inside Q Center. While her career started in the hospitality industry, she has found her true calling in radical health care. Katie joined the Q Center Board because she recognizes what a vital resource it is and wants to be a part of not only its preservation, but also its ability to grow and thrive in new ways. She has the unique experience of seeing the day-to-day at Q Center and having the opportunity to build strong relationships with it's most frequent patrons. In her spare time (what is that, really?), Katie loves to sit by a campfire in the woods, gaze at the stars and have meaningful conversations about wealth, privilege and social justice.
