Quinn Kathner Marketing Manager
Quinn Kathner joins the Sioux Falls Pride team as the Marketing Manager. Quinn holds a B.S. degree from SDSU in Mass Communications (Advertising). She has felt a strong bond to the community for as long as she can remember and openly identifies as lesbian. She is a proud parent to her 12-year old son, Vaughn, and enjoys passing the vision and values of equality to him. Quinn looks forward to continuing to serve the LGBTQA community here in Sioux Falls with integrity, compassion and lots of glitter!
Jess Petersen Marketing Coordinator
Jess Petersen moved to Sioux Falls in 2016 after graduating from University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. She became involved with pride shortly after moving here to meet new people and help grow the visibility of the LGBTQA people living in Sioux Falls. Jess currently volunteers with Pride, focusing on marketing and social media. Her hope is to continue to see Pride grow every year and for more people to feel comfortable expressing themselves in Sioux Falls and the surrounding community.
