Katy's Voice!


Katy was a college student on track to graduate with honors in June of 2016 before her life was tragically cut short in a senseless act of relationship violence.  She died of an anoxic brain injury following stragulation.  

Katy Straalsund was a beautiful, intelligent and caring daughter, sister, niece and friend with a bright future ahead of her. She was to graduate with honors in Speech & Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington this summer and had been recently accepted into a teaching abroad program in Barcelona, Spain. Upon returning from Spain, Katy had a goal of completing graduate studies in Speech/Language Pathology.  She had a passion for the science of the brain, and planned to further her studies in order to explore neurological communication disorders.

She had a vision to give others a voice!

The Katy Straalsund Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and the prevention of relationship violence in young people.  We seek to share Katy's story with young people to show the real and serious consequences of relationship violence.

Please help Katy's Voice be heard!  Domestic Violence is common and the consequnces are serious. You can make a difference.
