STAFF AND INTERNS
Meet our Team
For more than 30 years, Kathie Moehlig has been a public speaker, workshop presenter, nonprofit development coordinator, and support-group leader. She’s a certified life coach, an ordained minister, and a certified parenting instructor. As a parent advocate for her transgender son, Kathie helped navigate his journey. As a result of their family’s ongoing experience, the need to help other became more and more apparent. In early 2015, Kathie founded TransFamily Support Services (TFSSS), a nonprofit organization in San Diego serving transgender and gender nonconforming youth and their families. TFSS provides individual and family coaching to facilitate acceptance and support, assists with healthcare and insurance issues, helps families navigate the legal system, and advocates for resources and support at schools for transgender and gender-nonconforming youth and their families.
Community and Youth Programming Manager
We officially welcomed Evan to our staff as Community and Youth Programming Manager after their multiple roles with TransFamily Support Services since graduating from high school in 2016. As a part of their work with TFSS, Evan has shared their story with hundreds over the years about navigating the world — first as a nonbinary student and now as a young professional — notably speaking at conferences such as the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)’s Time to Thrive 2019, Gender Odyssey 2018 and 2019, National Education Association (NEA)’s LGBTQ+ Educational Issues Conference 2019 and Boost Collaborative Conference in 2019 and 2021. They also assisted in the training of San Diego Superior Court’s Judges, as well as within organizations and institutions like National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), San Diego State University and CalState University San Marco Nursing Programs, Girl Scouts of America, and Big Brother Big Sister. They received their Bachelor’s in Social Work from San Diego State University in 2021 and hope to dedicate their post-college career fully to continued education and policy reform to continue creating a safer world for trans and gender-nonconforming youth.

Social Work Intern
A son, pet parent, nephew and best friend, Ollie also happens to be a trans guy. Beginning his transition in 2015, his passion for reaching and supporting QT+ folks stems from the challenges and strengths he’s gained from his life experience. Ollie has experienced a fruitful career working with marine mammals for 14 years and land animals for the last five.
Today, Ollie’s dream job as a zookeeper allows him to draw from his work caring for animals to affect positive change in humanity and the world that we all share. He graduated from San Diego State University in 2016 with a degree in LGBT Studies, with a minor in Psychology. He currently attends Boise State University, working towards his MS in Social Work, with the goal of graduating in 2022. He loves baseball and is about halfway to his bucket-list goal of visiting every Major League Baseball park in the country.
