She graduated from Colorado Northwestern Community College with her Associate’s of Applied Sciences in Dental Hygiene and recently completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene Education.

For the past four years, she has been part of a missionary team that travels to Chiapas, Mexico to provide dental and medical care to the area’s native indigenous tribes. Katie and her husband, Jonathon, love to spend time gardening, hiking with their dog, exploring Austin’s food scene and traveling to new places.
