We’re excited to welcome Katie Kent as our Operations Coordinator. Katie is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Dynamo and supporting the Partnership on a variety of efforts. Key to Katie’s duties are organizing portfolio support initiatives and being the execution muscle behind ecosystem events and special projects. As a Partnership, we’re excited to welcome her to the team!
We were looking for a “Swiss army knife” when we were recruiting for this role and it’s clear that we’ve found her. In the first week alone, Katie has proved her love for creative problem solving and implementing process and procedure so we can better serve our founders.
Katie is a native of Chattanooga having been born and raised here in the Scenic City. Prior to joining Dynamo, she spent 15 years in Birmingham, AL running operations as well as managing design work for a regional architecture design firm. While Katie is a designer by trade, she comes from a highly entrepreneurial family and combines her love for painting and business on the nights and weekends completing commissioned art work for patrons in the local community. To top it all, she recently got certified as a running coach and works with clients to develop a sustainable running program.
Having graduated from the University of Georgia, she’s a HUGE Dawgs fan and joins the Dynamo ranks of SEC supporters (to clarify, that does not include myself). In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time with her family (including her seven nephews), being involved with her church, sewing, and being outdoors, especially near the water.
Say hello to her - we’re happy she’s here.
