Welcome to the Kent/Hope Regional Page
Meet Katrina Crosby
Kent/Hope Regional Manager
Katrina was only 14 years old when she discovered she had a passion for helping others. Having a large extended family with lots of elders to love her, Katrina felt she had a lot to offer working at a Rest Home where she could genuinely engage with those residents that didn’t really have family. Her caring ways led her to be a camp counsellor and Sunday School teacher on the Sunshine Coast.
When Katrina married, she spent 18 years in Scotland where she fell in love with the small villages and sense of community, learning more about art and design in industrial weaving on an organic farm. The balance of nature and the environment helped her see there can be positive solutions to what others might see as a problem.
Now in her fifth year with Pivot Point, Katrina has found the life-work balance she has always wanted. Having started as a Behavior Interventionist and Child Care Support Worker, her career path has evolved in many areas of support programs and group activities offered at Pivot Point. Katrina has been a Lead Instructor for the Agassiz Community Classroom, as well as the Assistant Regional Manager in the region for the past two years, culminating into her next step, as the Regional Manager for the Kent/Hope region.
In her down time, Katrina enjoys spending time with her non-binary teenager and fluffy old dog enjoying the beautiful surrounding area she calls home, actively participating in a variety of outdoor activities. Along with 3 mischievous cats and glow fish. She also enjoys baking and crafting which she has shared with her students helping to develop life skills.

We are striving to expand our already active Mental Health services, as well as our Educational Learning Centres with one location already in full swing. We are also providing Group Activities (online and in person where appropriate) because we know how much many of our children, teens, and young adults appreciate this type of interaction.
