Cayla Catino

As a member of the Rural Economic Vitality Team, I design, facilitate, and deliver programs focused on moving communities to action, creating healthy business and economic development ecosystems, and developing the capacity of rural leaders.

I have a background in psychology and nonprofit management and have run a therapeutic center for individuals with Down syndrome, served as director at an educational and historic homestead, worked at Habitat for Humanity, and held various leadership roles in my community. I am passionate about supporting healthy and resilient communities that celebrate diversity and foster a sense of belonging for all and supporting women in tapping into their inner wisdom and speaking their truth.

Outside of work, I enjoy all the amazing outdoor recreation activities Oregon has to offer such as hiking, biking, snowboarding, paddle boarding, and river rafting and also appreciate lazy days snuggled by the fireplace with my fur babies.
