As a child of five, Katie grew up in Evergreen Park, IL and attended Catholic grammar school and high school. She immediately went into the workforce and has held administrative assistant and secretary positions in small companies and churches all the way up to corporations. After having children God led her to a position at St. Ann, her own parish. She worked in the Religious Education Department there for a number of years before God led her to Minooka United Methodist. She is very excited to be a part of this family. Katie has lived in Channahon for 14 years with her husband and teenage children. She has an active lifestyle and in her free time enjoys running, biking and kayaking. She also enjoys crafting and volunteering her time.
