Katie and her family currently reside in northeastern Maine, where they have lived for the past three years. She and her husband have four children (ages 6, 4, 2, and 3 months). For the past three years, Katie has taught high school language arts, but took a step back from teaching this year to discover what else might be out there. She earned her Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from NM State University and her BA in English from Truman State. Over the past year, Katie has also worked as a freelance writer and greatly enjoys that work as well.
