KATIE AIELLo-HOWARD

Chief Operating Officer

When Katie isn’t at the gym, she’s dreaming up new ways to integrate Salesforce into her personal life. As Chief Operating Officer, Katie is thrilled to work on the strategic goals of the DC Public Education Fund, which include efficient fiscal oversight and processes, identifying key strategic priority areas for investment with DC Public Schools, and communicating with donors about their investments.

Katie joined the DC Ed Fund in 2013 after overseeing the management of a large federal grant at a small community GED school in the Price Hill neighborhood in Cincinnati. Katie has previously worked as a Professor of English and a tax consultant. 

Recently named one of Washington Business Journal's CFOs of the Year, Katie is a native of DC (… and northern Virginia), and holds a BA in Accounting and an MFA in Creating Writing. When she’s not working, you can find her on a run, reading the New York Times, or nerding-out learning InDesign.
