I have known Katie as a friend & fellow church member since I was in high school, just about to transition to college. Along with my educational transition, I navigated my selfhood with her at my side, coming into my truths. She has been an amazing friend and mentor, someone I could watch growing into her own voice as a Worship Associate (lay leader) on select Sundays. As I transitioned from a local community college to a local university, she was right there with me – this time as a Community Minister. Our paths have gone alongside each other – from career/skill sharing in Public Relations, from a friend to mentor/community minister, and so much more. She is one who helps you become who you really are and waits with you until you see it in yourself. She will be an amazing partner and contribution to any community, group or organization she wants to be part of.
