Katie Canale is the Events & Operations Manager, coordinating all on-farm events, providing site support and managing HR needs for EarthDance. After graduating with her B.A. in Sociology in 2013, Katie spent a year in Chuuk, Micronesia teaching 11th grade English-Reading as a Second Language. She then worked for Reach Out Volunteers as an international traveling recruiter speaking to lecture halls across the globe about volunteer opportunities in community and environmental sustainability. From November 2014 to May 2015 she lived and worked in New Zealand for Greenpeace. Katie loved traveling; however, she felt the pull to bring her passion and drive back to her home area. After teaching elementary reading for a year in Belleville, Katie was over the moon to find EarthDance, a not-for-profit organization that encompassed her greatest passions: education, sustainability, and healthy food.
