Katie Creedon manages the It’s About Kids (IAK) Network, which is the Children’s Campaign’s statewide advocacy network. She is responsible for connecting with and providing resources to IAK leaders and communities across Colorado regarding policy issues affecting Colorado’s kids and families. Katie began her career as a child Forensic Interviewer, and prior to joining the Children’s Campaign, managed programs for improved child welfare, disease and violence prevention, and access to health care.
After a few years in Colorado, Katie found (like many) that she did not want to leave Denver after completing her MA at the University of Denver. She’s happy to be in Colorado over 15 years later, working to engage communities across the state in efforts to improve the well-being of Colorado kids, and enjoying the city and mountains with her family.
