KATRENA KILPATRICK

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSOCIATE
katrena@familiestogethernc.org

Katrena brings a wealth of experience working with families with children to us starting with the seven years she spent as a preschool teacher and then moving into a leadership role as Youth Program Director for four more years.  As her own family began to mature, Katrena wanted a slower pace and she began working in administrative roles for various organizations and in her church before joining FT.  Katrena is a mom to two teenagers, one adult daughter, two grandsons, and one granddaughter. Growing up, Katrena wanted to pursue a singing career, which is why she loves to sing and write to this day.

One of my fondest childhood memories is of my first day of school. My dad took my hand, walked me to the teacher’s desk and said, ‘Ain’t nothing to be scared of. They just folks.’ My fears quickly went away.
