1. Name: Katie D’Amato

    Neighborhood: Previously Wallingford (Now new to the Eastside!)

    Years in Seattle: 5

    Occupation:  Director of Consumer Engagement, 206inc

2. Where is your favorite place to go in Seattle?

Tough one – most of my favorite spots involve food (and wine.) I’d say the patio at Bottlehouse or a Sunday happy hour at the Walrus and the Carpenter.

3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?

Folding fitted sheets at Goodwill. (Challenging? Yes. Glamorous? No.)

4. What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in the Seattle area?

I’m a fan and follower of the Outstanding in the Field Farm Dinners. One of the most memorable? Full Circle Farms. They let us loose to pick strawberries in between courses.

5. Are you involved with any other Seattle nonprofit organizations?

I am a member of the Junior League of Seattle where I serve on the NW Art Committee – bringing arts education to schools.

6. Which coffee shop do you frequent most?

During the week…Starbucks at Pike Place Market. On the weekends…Milstead & Co. or Fuel.

7. What three words best describe your experience with Seattle Works?

Connecting. Rewarding. Chuck Bass.  😉

8. Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks?

I love the spirit of a Sounders game (Scarves up!) but there’s something about a summer evening at Safeco field with a beer, a hotdog and that view!

9.  What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?

I had the chance to volunteer at some events surrounding President Obama’s Inauguration and it truly was an experience of a lifetime to be a part of it all. On a regular basis though I love any chance to volunteer at Food Lifeline. To think that in just a few hours of your time, you can help feed thousands of families in the Puget Sound, it’s pretty amazing. (And easy!)

10. What makes someone a Seattleite?

The ability to forget all about the moans and groans of the rainy weather the minute the sun comes out. (This place is truly spectactular in the sunshine.)

This weekly 10 question profile is Seattle Works way of highlighting and saying THANK YOU to all that our volunteers, leaders, community partners, board members, committee members, etc do for our community! We’re asking the same 10 questions to various Seattle Works participants as a fun way to feature the different ways to be involved with Seattle Works and in Seattle.
