Katie grew up on a berry farm in Talisheek, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana State University in 2017 with a BS in pyschology. She first came to Highlander in the summer of 2015 and led off-camp overnight trips as an activity counselor. In the following years she also worked as a yoga instructor and lifeguard.
Katie currently serves as our team coordinator, helping to hire, train and oversee our summer staff (including both cabin counselors and activity counselors). Her adventurous spirit has led her to 47 states and 18 different countries on four separate continents. She’s already completely filled a travel journal with tales of her journeys around the world, and hopes to fill many more journals in the years to come!
