Katie grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. She graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan with a bachelors degree (Communications/ Youth Ministry) in 2016. A month after she graduated, Katie joined us on staff here at CCC.
She met her husband Justin while interning together at a church in Chicago. In her free time Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and their dog Molly Tater. She also loves to write, play with her nieces & nephews, and spend as much time outdoors as possible!
What do you love about serving at CCC: "I love working in an environment that is community focused. We are always asking ourselves how we can meet needs & reach lost people. I also love that I get to combine my love for design/creativity with my passion for ministering to students. It's a pretty sweet set up that I am grateful to have!". "Oh, also I get to do ministry with my husband which is the MOST fun!".
Favorite CCC Event: Jump in Help Out Day, CCC Egg Drop, & any trips we get to take as a student ministry... those are the best!
Guilty Pleasure Snack/ Drink: "Are Tacos a snack?". I also love popcorn & dark chocolate. My favorite drink is either a good cup of black coffee or a Cafe Miel Latte.
