Faces of City Ave – Christine Katt, Alex’s Lemonade
Meet Christine Katt, the Community Engagement Coordinator
Christine loves building relationships with local businesses and
the community through key events such as The Million Mile and ALSF Games.
How did you first learn about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF)?
When I moved to Philadelphia in 2015, The Lemon Run was one of my first races in the city.
What is your role at ALSF?
I am a Community Engagement Coordinator. My target events are The Million Mile, Kick It Games, and ALSF Games.
Before working at ALSF, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
I used to work at a kids fitness company. I constantly had hula hoops, maracas, and cymbals rolling around in the trunk of my car.
How has ALSF helped you in your career development?
ALSF has given me more opportunity to work in the community. I’ve had a lot of freedom in my role, and the space to grow my programs as I see fit.
If you could switch your job with anyone else at ALSF, whose job would you want?
Possibly someone in accounting, as that would mean I’ve miraculously gotten better at math.
What are 3 words to describe ALSF?
Passionate, dedicated, community-driven.
What is your favorite part about working for ALSF?
The culture here- the team acknowledges victories of all sizes, and I’ve felt supported every step of the way.
Favorite travel spot?
If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What book did you read last?
IT by Stephen King- in preparation for Chapter 2 in September!
What did you want to be when growing up?
A vet, or an opera singer. Preferably both.
What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
I’d pay off those college loans….then go right back to school.
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I would love to write a book.
You’re happiest when?
I’m listening to podcasts.
Is there anything special about City Ave District that you can share?
City Ave has been indispensable in getting involved in the community. I had one call with Briana, and she hopped right on board to find me the resources I needed.
