Administrative - Kate Gross
Development and Communications Coordinator
So what do you do? "A little bit of everything, but a few of my primary roles are: developing print materials and advertisements, maintaining our website and social media outlets, developing annual marketing, outreach, and donor engagement plans, and coordinating special events and campaigns. A lot of my job is focused on visibility and messaging, and conveying to families and the community what we offer, what we're up to and why."
What drew you to work for ASK? "My heart is in the nonprofit and human services sector, where I've worked in various capacities for over 15years. When I came to work for ASK, I didn't realize how our mission would touch me personally. As a survivor of adolescent trauma, I recognize the want and desire of these kids to be understood, to feel good in their own skin, and to know that people around them care and support them; it makes all the difference.
What's your favorite part of your job? "Helping to shape the image of a fantastic organization. I get to be very creative, which is wonderful, and I get to interact with everyone here and we have a fun team. I especially love it when I get to work on projects with youth & family members. Their perspective and energy always inspires me.
