Kate Armentrout brings experience and passion to support the mission of Active SWV

Kate brings nearly a decade of experience in customer service, group dynamics, guiding, and sales experience from the tourism industry to her position of increasing support for the mission of Active SWV. 

“I am dedicated to any task I take on and strive for every project to be successful. Growing up in West Virginia has provided an incredible backdrop to the active lifestyle I lead, and I am passionate about sharing what West Virginia has to offer with others.” 

With a Bachelor of Science in Education and a minor in Recreation Tourism Management, Kate brings organization, facilitation, and knowledge of an active lifestyle to the position of Development Director. This, paired with her interests in photography, organized sports, and design,  brings a well-rounded skill set to continue the growth of Active SWV.

“Physical activity has always been a cornerstone in my life. I love to get outside to
move and am a firm believer in the power of play. I’m excited to be able to join an organization that brings such a variety of healthy opportunities and resources to the community. I look forward to cultivating relationships and will strive to enhance giving and fundraising efforts, as well as advance the ecosystem of Active SWV by sharing the impacts its programs have had in our area.”
