Katie graduated from Vanderbilt Divinity School in December of 2018 with her M.Div., and is excited to become part of the Central community. Having grown up in Clemmons, North Carolina, she studied psychology at UNC-Chapel Hill and served as a YAV through the Young Adult Volunteer Program of the PC(USA) after graduating. As a YAV in Nashville, Katie worked at Room In The Inn with people experiencing homelessness and began her interest in Vanderbilt. She has worked with children and youth programs at churches in North Carolina and Nashville, as well as serving on the planning team for the Montreat Middle School Conference through Montreat Conference Center.
Katie is excited to explore the Twin Cities along with her partner, who moved here last year. She loves to sing, strum along on the guitar, and has recently started knitting.
