Katie has served at Trinity since January 2006, helping lead that congregation's mission and adult education ministries.
A native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Katie received a bachelor of arts with academic honors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with a double major in communication science and rhetorical and religious studies. After college, she served a one-year term as an AmeriCorps volunteer in rural Idaho, where she coordinated mediation services for juveniles in the court system and led home education programs with at-risk families of young children.
