Katie was born and raised in Michigan where she attended Michigan State University (Go Green!) and worked in both Children and Family Ministries as well as the non-profit sector. She and her husband, Jeff, moved to Southern California in 2011 so she could attend Fuller Theological Seminary, where she recently graduated with an M.Div and MS in Marriage and Family Therapy. Katie is passionate about helping families find healing and restoration which allows them to thrive in God’s call. You'll also find her spending time around our Lay Counseling Ministry, as well. In her free time, Katie likes trying new recipes, doing yoga outside and finding creative ways to entertain her Border Collie mix, Polly.
