Katie Desormeaux

Case Work & Communications

Before joining Team Orléans South-Navan, Katie worked in social services in front line harm reduction and counselling roles. In the office, she uses her social work background and education to facilitate resident-focused, empathy driven communications. She is passionate about outreach and engagement and her favourite office job is answering the phone. A problem solver by nature, she believes in the power of collaboration and the importance of diversity in community building.

Outside the office, she’s likely getting her hands dirty with her pets. She can be found either cooking at home with her cat underfoot, or at the pottery studio. Her favourite things include loud music, VIP karaoke, and playing trivia. She has a 200-day (and counting) wordle streak and does the crossword every morning.

We work hard to make sure you are heard.
