As a third-generation St. John the Baptist Parish resident, Katie Klibert is deeply rooted in the River Region and has a vested interest in its continued growth. Her role as Commissioner for the Port of South Louisiana enables her to assist directly with that growth and economic development.

“With 17 years of experience in telecommunications and infrastructure, I have a unique perspective on the challenges and growth opportunities for the Port of South Louisiana,” says Katie. “The Port and its commissioners make decisions that ensure the sustainable economic future of our region.”

Katie and her family choose to live and work in St. John, where she focuses on creating and sustaining a viable living and working environment in Louisiana for her son and future generations. Klibert currently serves on the St. John the Baptist Parish Community Action Civil Service Board and serves as Vice Chair on the Louisiana Workforce Development Area 14 Workforce Investment Board. She is a member of GNO Inc.’s NextGen Council, designed to introduce new leadership to GNO Inc. and to develop business leaders with a regional perspective.

“Social responsibility is not just for the corporate sector,” says Katie. “As residents of the River Region, we should seek out organizations that can help better our communities. In a post-Ida world, we can volunteer and give back to a genuinely suffering region.”

Katie credits her adaptability and self-advocacy for helping her attain the leadership roles she enjoys today.
