Katie Knipe

Communications Program Director

Katie Knipe hails from Kingsport, TN and has worked in nonprofit management and arts administration for the past 10 years. In this time, she has dedicated her career to fundraising for organizations whose missions fuel her fire, including organizations who promote classical music performance and those who serve people experiencing homelessness.

Katie joined Heading Home in 2019 as Communications Program Director. Prior to Heading Home, Katie lived in Cincinnati, OH where she worked for an organization that develops affordable housing for low-income residents.

She and her husband Kenney relocated to New Mexico in 2019 to put down roots closer to family and they’re grateful to call Edgewood home. As a lifelong clarinetist, Katie has a deep love for music. Katie and Kenney enjoy spending time with their dog and two cats – Apollo, Ares, and Lebowski – while listening to their collection of vinyl records.
