Katie is incredibly passionate about working with children and providing opportunities for children and youth to be engaged in their communities. She is currently studying elementary education at Mount Royal University with a focus in Social Studies. Her love for working with children sparked her to create a youth engagement program in her hometown where she learned the true power that children have to make a difference. Katie strongly believes each child is unique and has their own strengths and abilities that should be celebrated.
Growing up on a cattle farm, Katie developed a love for nature and being active outdoors. She remains active into adulthood playing volleyball and getting out into nature wherever she can.
