Katey Price, Executive Director

Throughout her career, Katey Price has worked at the intersection of public policy, politics, and the law. She currently serves as the Executive Director for the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, where she’s responsible for executing the vision and has the overall responsibility for the organization’s mission, administration, development, and programs.

Prior to her work at the Life & Hope Network, Katey was at a digital consulting firm where she managed successful digital fundraising campaigns for congressional candidates during the 2020 cycle. Previously, she ran and handled press for several federal campaigns in the national spotlight. She’s done virtually every job on a campaign from field canvasser to press secretary, on up to campaign manager and outside consultant.

Katey got her start in Washington working on trade policy and dairy issues at a boutique lobbying firm before transitioning to legal practice in Colorado—only to have the political siren’s song draw her back once again. She’s thrilled to work full-time in the pro-life movement to advance the cause of the medically vulnerable and write about pro-life issues as an Associate Scholar for Charlotte Lozier Institute.

Katey is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University and Regent University School of Law. She’s admitted to practice law in Maryland and Colorado, and her practice areas include sports and transactional law as well as an interest in legislation and constitutional law.

Hailing originally from Johnstown, Pa., Katey now resides in Tampa. When not championing the pro-life message, Katey can often be found exploring the great outdoors, cheering on the Buckeyes, and quite often, eating ice cream.
