Raphaele vK Headshot

Raphaele von Koettlitz

Director of Communications

Raphaele has been working with D&A since 2012 in various different capacities. For the most part, she works on D&A’s communications and project manages a range of inclusion projects for clients spanning across the higher education, workplace and the charity sector. She is an avid writer and researcher so you will often find her putting together articles or project proposals. She has a particular interest in the diverse cultural perspectives on mental health.

She came to D&A as a fresh-faced graduate with an understanding of what it means to be a student accessing DSA support. Reflecting on her own experiences, she has helped steer the organisation to reflect the needs of those D&A supports.  She is proud to be part of a caring and progressive community.

Having studied Anthropology, human diversity continues to interest Raphy… hence she is currently living in France, working remotely for D&A, whilst studying an MSc Social Science of Health. La vie est belle, n’est-ce pas!?
