“I love that I am able to make a small impact towards the “healthy” lifestyle and be a part of a movement that is designed to make San Diego an even better place.”

Kate Santilena is a Community and Youth Organizer for East County San Diego. She completed her undergraduate studies in Kinesiology at San Diego State University. With a passion to learn, Kate moved on to receive her master’s in Kinesiology from the University of Hawaii and decided she wanted to do more with the community. Now, she is pursuing her second master’s at San Diego State in Public Health, Health Promotion and Behavioral Science, and hopes to make a difference in San Diego County. She believes that change starts with the individual and can build to influence a community.
