Katie grew up in small town Mid-Michigan. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Business from Michigan State University where she graduated in 2012. After graduation she moved to the Twin Cities to pursue a career in the hotel industry and then onward to San Diego with her soon-to-be husband, Nick. Over the past 10 years, Katie has always been involved in her church to some capacity. Whether it was playing her saxophone in the church band, teaching elementary Sunday School, or leading middle school and high school aged youth, she has always felt called to serve. With a passion to lead and develop kids’ hearts for Christ, Katie is honored to take the leap of faith with Jesus and walk in ministry through being a part of the Venture team. Katie and her (now) husband, Nick are excited to venture together and watch God move and grow in the homes of our Venture kids and families. In their spare time, Katie and her husband, Nick are usually in the kitchen trying out new recipes or glued to the couch (or up in the stands) cheering on their favorite football teams 7 months out of the year. Go Green!
