Katie graduated from Benedictine College, where she studied Theology and Mass Communications. She encountered Saint Paul’s Outreach as a freshman, and was quickly attracted to the life and community she found there. As an upperclassman, she was in Household and spent some time as a Student Missionary, and she loved every second. Katie is so excited to be on Mission Staff and heading to Northeastern University in Boston!
Katie grew up in Hughson, California, the second of seven children and daughter to a youth minister for the first 18 years of her life. Jesus has been part of her life since day one, and every day with Him has been a new adventure and deeper conversion. Katie could not adequately express what God has done in her life in a bio. The short story: Jesus is crazy generous and is constantly managing to surprise her. She has a passion for women’s ministry and the powerful healing and joy that comes from Christ-centered sisterhood.
Katie loves exploring big cities, going on long walks, writing poetry, and blasting car tunes. She has a great appreciation for anyone who can casually quote her favorite TV comedies or comedians.
Don’t hesitate to ask her to grab a cup of coffee because the answer is always, unequivocally, yes.
