Katie's desire in life is to glorify and honor Christ and to share His love with others.  Her passion for the outdoors and adventure is a great avenue to bridge these two desires together.  Some of her favorite outdoor activities are backpacking, camping, and snowboarding. She also really enjoys water activities, such as kayaking, snorkeling, and wakeboarding.

Katie received her Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education from the University of South Carolina. She then taught and coached at Meadow Glen Middle School. She has been certified through the American Red-Cross in Lifeguarding and First-Aid / CPR. She also has received training to be a Swim Instructor. 

Katie and her husband, Corey, who is a Columbia fireman, are members of Three Rivers Baptist Church in Irmo. They are very involved with the youth and serve on the Youth Ministry Team. Their newest adventure is being a parent to their baby girl, Kylee.
