Katie Connell has been building online communities for over 10 years. Starting when social media was called forums and bulletin boards she worked her way up from smaller video game, publishing and entertainment companies to eventually find herself at larger corporations like Disney.

While at Disney she began to volunteer at her local martial arts studio helping teach anti-bullying, self-defense and healthy living to people of all ages. The impact these classes had on her students affected Katie profoundly. It was clear she wanted to use her career to create positive change in the world and turn her passion into profession.

The rewarding work within her own community led her into the non-profit sector by joining the XPRIZE Foundation, a company determined to spur innovation in health, education and environmental technology to tackle the world’s problems. After revolutionizing XPRIZE’s social presence and social strategy it was time for a new challenge.

With a shared passion for helping people live happy, healthy, and confident lives it was obvious RescueSCG was the perfect fit. As RescueSCG’s Sr. Manager, Social Media Strategies her new mission is to inspire the LGBT community to embrace tobacco-free lifestyles.
