In her free time, Katie loves to work in the yard, go camping, cooking/cleaning and catching some sunshine! She believes the best thing of being apart of the community is the enjoyment in seeing families outside of work, watching them grow, and seeing them remember you years from now and how you helped them grow and develop. She loves working with children because she loves the energy and honesty they bring to each day. Nothing is more precious than helping grow a child's mind and confidence. Her favorite Bible verse is: "God is within her, she will not fail" Psalm 46:5.
