In Katie's Words: 

My journey to traditional K-12 education was a little bit different than most. After graduating from undergrad with a BA in Strategic Communications from THE Ohio State University, I began a career in higher education. After spending many years working in admissions, I worked on a grant program through the state of Ohio called ‘Tech Prep’, which aligned career technical education to industry certifications and early college credit. Through that work, I learned about Lakota’s  district goals for the program to expand, and the rest is history! I truly enjoy helping students learn more about themselves and their passions to guide their decision making about the future of their education and career path.

When not working, I love spending time with my family. My husband John and my two daughters Riley and Emily (who are also #WEareLakota students!) are my biggest supporters.
