Katie studied architecture at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and worked in an architectural firm in Chicago for 4 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. She had a part-time business as an artist and children’s illustrator, and she is excited to use her art and social media skills as the Communication Director at Common Ground Northeast. She has served in a variety of ways at CGNE and volunteers with International Justice Mission. Katie enjoys hanging out with her family, painting, reading, and being in nature.
