Struby K. Struble
Operations Coordinator & Project Associate
Struby gets to do a little bit of everything here at LFA! As the Operations Coordinator she is responsible for keeping the office running smoothly, the supply cabinets full, and the staff well fed and caffeinated. With a warm smile she’s always happy to greet and welcome LFA’s clients, partners, and guests. As a Project Associate, she’s able to use her passion for all manner of social justice in combination with her attention to detail and wide range of support skills. Her background in social justice advocacy and education on college and university campuses gives her a broad knowledge base on many issues and topics. She has particular expertise and knowledge on the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Community, Interpersonal Violence Prevention, Intersectionality, and how loving our bodies and our selves is the first step of the revolution.
A beloved and long career in the Department of Student Life at the University of Missouri allowed Struby to offer administrative and programmatic support to an array of offices and centers, including the Multicultural Center, the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center, the Craft Studio, the Women’s Center, the LGBTQ Resource Center, the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention Center, the Wellness Resource Center, Venture Out, and Greek Life. She went on to Coordinate the Women’s Center, and – after a year away to play semi-professional soccer here in the Bay Area – returned to Direct the LGBTQ Resource Center for five solid years of wide-reaching campus-culture-changing measurable success.
Struby is still a passionate soccer player and is getting more involved on the administrative side of the Golden Gate Women’s Soccer League, most recently helping draft, adopt, and educate on a Player Eligibility Policy friendly and open to more genders, including trans and gender non-conforming players. She loves to write, can be found on open mic stages across the Bay, and is in the process of completing and publishing her first memoir. She lives in Berkeley with her one-eyed dog, Mr. Dibs, and a myriad of wonderful housemates and neighbors.
