Board of Directors & Staff


Katie Salcido

Board Chair

Chico native Katie Salcido works in the Financial Aid & Scholarship Office at Chico State. She received her B.A. in philosophy in 1997 and is currently in her last year of graduate school, completing a Master of Public Administration. Katie and her wife, Holly, have participated in multiple AIDS/LifeCycle events, riding their bicycles 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 7 days. The annual event has become a passion for them both as it raises money and awareness to one day end HIV/AIDS. Katie also enjoys spending her free time running, walking her dogs, and training for new challenges. She hopes to serve the Stonewall community through the myriad experiences she has developed through her dedication to education, physical pursuits, personal and professional friendships, and community involvement.
