Melissa Ostrowski

Development Manager 
While attending Southwest Minnesota State University, Melissa found her love early for fundraising. She started working with her college athletic department to expand relationships with major donors to raise funds for athletic scholarships. Previously working with other cancer organizations focusing on the science behind finding a cure for cancer patients, Melissa joins Walk With Sally excited to work alongside others to empower children experiencing trauma through a loved one’s cancer journey. Melissa lives in Redondo Beach with her husband, Ryan, son, Garrett, and their dog, Brody!

I had a goldfish named Bob, who lived for 10 years! I saved his life once by giving him Fish CPR (no, not mouth to mouth)!

KATI GARRIDO

Program Director
Kati was born in Mexico City and has been living in Los Angeles for over 20 years. She started her professional career working in the entertainment business at a Hollywood acting school where she transitioned to the non-profit animal rescue world. This is where she found her true calling, making a positive impact on society. Back in Mexico, Kati was an English teacher at a Montessori school where the experience of working with children and learning from them, was one of the most rewarding periods in her life. For Kati, it is very important to work in something you are proud of and passionate about, and Walk with Sally definitely embodies both! Having the opportunity to serve and help children who are in need of support, is something she is greatly looking forward to!

I have been to 18 states and seven countries!
