Katy Lofquist
Communications & Engagement Coordinator

Katy joined the United Way of Northeastern Minnesota team in May of 2019. Katy is an Iron Range native who grew up in Virginia, MN. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Print Journalism from Concordia College Moorhead; for her first job out of college she returned to the Range to work as a reporter for the Hibbing Daily Tribune. She worked for the Iron Mining Association of MN in Duluth for eight years before moving back to the Range.  “I was always impressed by UWNEMN when I reported on the organization for the Hibbing Daily Tribune, and I long considered my role at the IMA as a way to help grow this region that is so close to my heart. I am so excited to have been given this opportunity to blend all my passions in a way that can positively and directly impact the lives of people in our area.” Katy enjoys spending time with her family (especially at the cabin), traveling with her husband, and game nights with friends.
