Loni Neilson-Kattell: Youth Development Coordinator

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Born and raised in Missoula, MT Loni joined EmpowerMT as a youth attending the annual Empowering Youth Leadership Institute. Loni recognized the importance of EmpowerMT’s mission and was excited to participate in workshops and trainings through high-school, undergrad, and her graduate studies at Walla Walla University. Loni earned her BA in Technical Theatre from the University of Montana in 2014. Although her passion has shifted to a social justice lens, the theatre is still essential to her work. Stage managing allows her to facilitate audience participation in the artistic community by fostering a space to witness others’ capacity for self-expression and healing through the creation of art and communities. EmpowerMT was the inspiration for Loni to pursue her Masters in Social Work. She is happy to be a part of the EmpowerMT family as a staff member and looks forward to learning and growing even more with the Missoula community.
