KiYa Moghaddam enjoys working in the realm of social issues that impact everyday life. Her passion for helping others and her talent for making connections between complex and moving parts make her ideally suited to manage the more than 200 individual members of our coalition clients.
Prior to joining WNA, KiYa managed communications for the state office of a national nonprofit. She also facilitated educational opportunities for local schools, parents, and law enforcement, and she coordinated the statewide volunteer program.
KiYa’s tenure as District Director for a Central Texas-based state representative provided an opportunity for her to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for the impact public policy can have at all levels of government as well as on the constituency of a governing body.
KiYa moved to Austin from the Texas Panhandle to earn degrees in Broadcast Journalism, Public Relations, and Business Foundations from the University of Texas at Austin. She married a native Austinite and for more than a decade has called Central Texas home.
