Rachel Huff-Doria

Executive Director

rachel@forwardmontana.org

Inside the Office: Rachel loves to lead our board, staff, and volunteers in planning efforts by asking heady questions like, “In 5 years, how can we ensure young Montanans’ values are better represented in our government?” and “How do we make sure the coffee pot is turned off when we leave?”.

Outside the Office: Rachel frequents Montana hot spots–hot springs, hot tubs, saunas, bubble baths, sunny spots on the floor.

Kiah Abbey

Deputy Director

Catherine Shepard

Operations Coordinator

Inside the Office: Catherine plays mom to staff and board members: ”Be sure to finish your paperwork.” “Remember you have a grant report due next week.” “Wash your @*$#ing dishes.”

Outside the Office: Catherine will be playing guitar, having been inspired seeing Bonnie Raitt live twice in one week–2,400 miles driven for one legendary red-haired goddess who, consequently, loves voter registration and mobilization as much as we do.
