After years of working in the political arena, including multiple presidential and state-wide campaigns, Katie made a career change and focused on the tech industry. She has worked in almost every area in the tech world, but prefers utilizing her communication and organizational skills. In her free time, she likes traveling, cheering on her favorite teams: the StL Cardinals, Mizzou Tigers and KC Chiefs, cooking and relaxing with her husband. Upon your first GoToMeeting with Katie, you’ll probably get to meet (hear) her two insane and adorable dogs.
