My name is Kat Heilman, and I’m the new Director of Communications for Our Daily Bread. My duties include marketing, supporting fundraising, helping staff and volunteers with technology, and more. I handle our Facebook and Instagram accounts as well as our website, making signage, assisting with press communications, and performing other types of communication within the organization and with the public. Don’t be surprised if you see me around taking pictures for social media!
My passion for community has led me to Our Daily Bread. I joined the organization in the beginning of August. I grew up in Cincinnati, where I attended SCPA for creative writing and costume design. I moved to Philadelphia after high school, where I went to college for fine arts and then began working in community arts as a marketer and fundraiser. After 12 years away, I moved back to Cincinnati last year and live in CUF.
Outside of work, I work on writing a play and some poetry, making art, and sewing. I hang out with my awesome partner, play with my chihuahua and cat, and listen to music. I’m also excited to get back to boxing training when COVID is over.
I am dedicated to helping those in need and improving quality of life for community members. I hope that in my role with Our Daily Bread, I will help bring new supporters and volunteers to the organization and let more people know about our services and work.
