Whitney Byrd is a fifth-generation native to Colorado. While she loves the mountains, she ventured to San Diego, CA where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Writing from Point Loma Nazarene University. She currently works as the Communications Manager at Catalyst Public Affairs based in Denver. In that role, she helps with media relations, social media, collateral development, project and client management, and much more. She aims to use her skills from her profession in all aspects of her life—including philanthropically.
Whitney comes from a family who believes giving back to the community is an essential part to leaving a lasting legacy. Whitney began volunteering in her middle and high school years. As an active participant in Student Council, she helped support the annual “Toys for Tots” drive; served as a 4-year member of Key Club; and participated in church ministries. She continued her efforts in college years when she served as a tutor for Reality Changers, helping students from low-income households achieve academic success and apply to colleges. In her career, she spent much of her downtime serving with multiple organizations including Food Bank of the Rockies, Jewish Family Services, Kaizen Food Rescue, and Wish of a Lifetime. Presently, Whitney is an active member of her church, serving as a support for various ministries, including Sunday School, the Youth Group, and any collateral needs. When the opportunity presented itself to join the There With Care team, Whitney couldn’t imagine a better organization to support.
