A Bit About The Dreamer
Katie Kilby - Chief Visionary
Katie is a connector by trade and passion. She has centered her personal and professional lives around ensuring stronger veterans and stronger communities.
A military brat and Marine Corps Spouse, Katie is proud to have called Baltimore home since closing her Peace Corps Service in 2011. For most of the last decade, she's worked for various veteran nonprofits, and has served in the chasm between the individuals looking for support and the resources that exist to serve and engage them.
In 2017, Katie founded The Baltimore Military Muster as an effort to unite the veteran serving space in Central Maryland. A meet up style event, The Muster meets quarterly (currently on hold and being re-envisioned due to COVID-19) and brings together organization representatives with anyone who is looking to be connected or has a resource to share.
Reveille Grounds will be the permanent home to The Muster, as well as a community gathering space and resource center for military and veteran affiliated individuals and families.
While dreaming about launching Reveille Grounds, Katie was recently brought on board as the Central Maryland Program Manager with ServingTogether - a program of EveryMind. ServingTogether works to ensure access, equity, and education regarding resources throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern VA. Katie is thrilled to have joined such a passionate team and help lead the expansion into Greater Baltimore while continuing to lay the groundwork for Reveille Grounds.
