Kailey Morin

Kailey fell in love with storytelling at a very young age. She pursued a Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy from the University of Guelph where she specialized in ethics and focused on creative writing. She later earned a Post-Graduate Certificate in Communications from Sheridan College. Kailey found non-profit communications as a crossroad between storytelling (what she is good at) and social justice (what she believes in). Over the last several years, Kailey has worked collaboratively with over 60 non-profit agencies in the GTA in community engagement roles while working for United Way and the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture. Now the Communications Manager for Canadian Feed The Children, Kailey connects audiences with children, families and communities who tell their own powerful stories.
