Assistant to Institutional Advancement
B.A., English and Communication, Minor in Dance, University of Washington
Born and raised in the Seattle area, Katie is a pacific northwest native. She is a proud alum of the University of Washington where she earned her B.A. in English & Communication with a minor in Dance. Over the years, she has trained in ballet, modern, and tap dance. After graduating from UW, she started her career in Advancement at an independent school. For the past three years, Katie has managed donor information, created fundraising appeals, and supported special events. She provided donor research and effective strategies to help reach annual fundraising goals. Katie’s passion for storytelling, building relationships, and writing have emerged as her professional strengths.
When she’s not working, Katie can be found running long distances, lifting weights or biking (she hopes to run a marathon someday!). She would say that fitness and health are two of her greatest passions. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking healthy meals, baking, and reading good books. Throughout the week, she volunteers in a variety of capacities with Shoreline Community Church.
