Katie Dukart || Director 
Chelsey || Co-Chapter Leader

Hello! My name is Katie Dukart, and I serve as the Director of Box of Balloons - Fargo. I've been married to my husband Eric for more than 20 years, and together we have 3 children -- Joey (17), Bella (15), and Charlie (12). I have a passion for community, communication and connection, and have spent the majority of my career working with non-profit organizations in helping to develop their communications, marketing and development strategies. In my spare time, I love nothing more than traveling with my children and cheering them on at their activities, and spending time as a family at our lake home. 


I strongly believe that we're better together, and that the power of community is unlike no other! I'm elated to share and spread this mission with the FM Area in hopes that every child feels loved and celebrated on their birthday, and that each birthday is truly HAPPY! 

Hi! My name is Chelsey! I was born and raised in Fargo, ND. I am a proud Fargo native who loves community engagement and serving others. I am a  medical social worker with children and families with complex medical needs.I married my college sweetheart and enjoy being a mama to my adorable daughter. As a family, we enjoy being outside, going on walks, traveling, and having silly dance parties at home.


I am humbled and excited to be able to help bring Box of Balloons to Fargo. I know how giving our community is, and I can't wait to see the impact it will have. I LOVE everything birthdays. It gets me excited to plan, decorate, and celebrate with others. It is the one day out of the year dedicated to you and that is very special. Everyone deserves to feel valued and loved on their birthday and that is the mission of Box of Balloons. Still to this day, my mom bakes my favorite Creme de Mint cake and goes all out with decorating my presents. Glitter and confetti are my favorite colors!
