Kate Gross

Senior Program Director
Nick Name: 
Dancing Penguin

Where were you born? I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. 

What did you want to be you grew up? I grew up going to resident camp in Ohio. I always wanted to be a camp director and my dream came true when I started working for the YMCA of the Triangle in 2014!

What are your favorite hobbies? I love spending time outside especially visiting the mountains of North Carolina. 

What are you most looking forward to in Y Guides? I feel so fortunate to have a job that takes me to new places where we encourage our participants to have fun and spend time with their loved ones. I look forward to building relationships with the Y Guides community and learning about the great history of this program.  

If you could visit anywhere, where would you go? Anywhere with a great view of the mountains and no cell phone service! 

What's the most important thing you've learned in life? Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.
