Katie Bailey

Advancement Manager

Growing up across the U.S, South Korea and Japan, Katie did not find home until she set foot on Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg and became completely enamored with the mountains of Southwest Virginia. After graduation, she worked in public affairs and education with Planned Parenthood in Roanoke and the New River Valley.

With a passion for addressing the social determinants of health, Katie moved to work in HIV research at a large LGBTQ community health center in Boston.

She is thrilled to be back south with her husband, daughter and cat (Asparagus) and to work as a steward for the place she loves most. On any given day, you can find her trying to keep her houseplants alive, cheering for the Hokies and spending time with her family.
