Shownotes

Kate Schelbe is the Backbone Leader of the Teton Behavioral Health Alliance and the Executive Director of Girls Education International. After visiting the Tetons on a family road trip at the age of eight, Kate made the decision to make Jackson Hole her home when she grew up. Ten days after graduating college in 2006, she lived up to that dream. 

Kate has always had a passion for education and helping others. As the Backbone Leader of the Teton Behavioral Health Alliance and the Executive Director of Girls Education International, Kate has dedicated her career to ensuring that everyone has access to the resources and support they need to thrive.

In this episode, Kate discusses her journey from a young girl visiting the Tetons on a family road trip, to making Jackson Hole her home and pursuing a career in education. She talks about her experiences working with local organizations such as the Teton Literacy Center, Teton Science School, and the Jackson Hole Community School.

Kate also shares her excitement about her new role at the Teton Behavioral Health Alliance and the mission of this newly formed organization. She and Stephan then discuss Girls Education International, which is focused on providing girls in rural communities of Tanzania and Pakistan with access to education.

Throughout the conversation, Kate emphasizes the importance of education, not only for individuals but also for communities and the world at large. She highlights the ripple effect that educating women can have, and the many ways in which it can lead to positive change.
