Katie grew up in Raleigh, NC, and although she has lived hundreds of miles away for almost a decade, she still calls Sweet Carolina home. Her favorite season is football, and having served for four years as FOCUS missionary in SEC Country, the Auburn Tigers won her heart. A ballerina since age 4, Katie currently trains under The Colorado Ballet for fun. She is the only person in the state of Colorado who does not ski. She dreams of being a career-student where she could continue studies in Music, Literature, Art, and History. She graduated from Hillsdale College with an English degree and recommends that, and Jesus, to everyone. She credits her best missionary efforts to the Holy Spirit and a good glass of wine.
