Kati Bono – Communications & Strategic Projects Manager

Kati joined the ChildWise team in April 2017. While this is her first experience in the non-profit sector, she possesses more than 20 years’ experience in professional administration and communication. In addition to assembling our workshops and conferences, she manages all of our individual trainings and tracks the data collected. Kati is a trained ACE Presenter and certified in Mental Health First Aid.


Even though she hadn’t heard of ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ prior to working at ChildWise, she’s had a passion for this work from the beginning. She has commented several times that “this knowledge would’ve been extremely helpful for my parents who adopted two biological sisters in the 1960’s. My parents didn’t have the understanding or the tools to help them deal with the traumatic experiences my sisters had endured prior to adoption. This information would have been life-changing for my family.” Her hope is to help bring the knowledge of ACEs and resilience to communities across Montana because she knows firsthand the difference it can make in the life of an individual and a family.
