Regional Director - East
Katie Breault brings over a decade of experience marked by her ability to build strategic relationships and develop creative solutions that meet business needs. Prior to YUPRO, she led the planning, development and implementation of a program to combat the high unemployment rate among young adults with vision impairments; served as the founding employment placement manager at Year Up Arizona; and partnered with Gallup, Inc. to launch the first Strengths-Based State initiative, which propelled Rhode Island from 49th in the country to 1st in employee engagement. Katie discovered Year Up through a volunteer opportunity to mentor one of the most talented, resilient, and hardest-working young adults she had ever met. Through this relationship, she was inspired to devote her career to connecting Opportunity Youth with companies looking for talent. With her mentee at the forefront of her mind, Katie is committed to helping her clients tap into this exceptional, and yet often overlooked, source of talent.
