Kate Di Nitto

she/her/hers, Enrollment & Orientation Manager


I am your point of contact for admissions at Fairhaven College! I'm a Bellingham native who studied English and creative writing for my own education. I hold a BA and an MFA from the University of Montana in poetry. My 15-year career has been focused on increasing access to education and healthcare for historically underserved populations -- beginning with working in children's mental health and most recently during my seven years working at Whatcom Community College. I am passionate about supporting students on their journeys: providing individualized services, developing equitable processes, and cultivating a culture of learning alongside one another. I serve on the board of the Bellingham Public Schools Foundation, and I spend my free time exploring the outdoors with my family, reading, cooking, and working in the garden.
