Hi I’m Katelyn Michele, Beach City Kitty founder and CEO.

I oversee pretty much every aspect of the rescue; including street & shelter rescues, fosters, applications, social media, marketing, purrmotions, TNR, fundraising and events.

I have an extensive background in street and event promotions, and have managed campaigns for dozens of Fortune 500 companies.  I also have a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Columbia College Chicago have dabbled in writing, acting, makeup & wardrobe styling, modeling and TV hosting.

I was born in Chicago, IL, grew up in Europe and have lived here in Venice for the last 18 years.

My passions include art, photography, media and events. I use these to build awareness, find forever homes and raise money for cat rescue. I also love to meet people,mingle, network and support my community.

With the help of my team, I have rescued and found homes for nearly 400 cats in the four years since our inception!
