Jude Parker Koski

Membership and Community Director

Pronouns: he/him


I have dedicated my career to serving marginalized communities through work in the nonprofit sector since 1996. I have helped youth experiencing homelessness access education, advocated for LGBTQIA+ youth and families, worked to reform foster care policy, and helped preserve urban open space and community gardens. Before joining the NTEN staff, I served on the NTEN Board of Directors and participated in the NTC since 2012. I hold an MBA in Sustainable Management from Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco. As a transgender professional, I have experienced the NTEN community as particularly welcoming and supportive. As membership and community director, I am deeply committed to ensuring everyone experiences solidarity within this important and unique community.

Outside of work, I am a Trap-Neuter-Return practitioner and advocate for feral community cats and serve on the Guiding Coalition for the San Francisco SPCA Community Cats Program. I live in San Francisco with my partner and four rescued kitties. I enjoy being creative through designing and woodworking with repurposed materials, gardening, and hiking in the Bay Area.
