Katie’s time is spent working hard to be a great mom, healthy partner, loving friend and philanthropist. She cares deeply about children, families and the impact of sustainable community development. Katie has worked with children and families both locally and abroad for 18 years and currently serves as the Director of all things in her home. She earned her BA in Family and Child Development from Texas State University and is a licensed TBRI practitioner. She has learned that unquestioning love with a good dose of laughter has the ability to heal the deepest wounds. Katie lives in the Texas Hill Country with her handsome husband and their three children in a house full of brains, wit and an abundance of loud. Raising her own family reminds her daily of the importance in finding humor before frustration, the humility created by her children imitating her character and the power of a well-timed curse word.
