Hi! My name is Katelyn Tungland, but a lot of people call me KT! I was raised in Hudson, Iowa and currently reside in Cedar Falls with my husband, Alex, our daughter Joslynn and our Australian Shepard, Chex! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication. Prior to working for Junior Achievement I was a JA volunteer and quickly fell in love with the program and wanted to get more involved in the community. JA has blessed me with a career that allows me to find a healthy balance between work and life! I love how JA focuses on youth education and entrepreneurship!
Part of My Job: Working in the community! I love connecting with business people, networking and participating in other service organizations and clubs. I love spreading the mission of JA with some of the best community leaders and colleagues in Eastern Iowa!
Spot in Eastern Iowa: The trails! I love to run. The Cedar Valley has some of the best paved and dirt trails. I have ran 2 full marathons, 19 half marathons and countless 10k’s and 5k’s.
Quote: "Comparison is the thief of joy” – Teddy Roosevelt. I love this quote because it is a daily reminder that everyone is unique and has their own story. It is not fair to compare.
Things to do after 5 PM: Spending time outside with the family! And eating dinner…. Because I love to cook and to eat!
