Her recruitment responsibilities include managing the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and the south side of Illinois.

Why I love Hope

Katie loves Hope College because of the incredible duo of high academic rigor and strong focus on building relationships and growing a community. Katie finds that Hope is a place where students can meet their greatest potential, because they are pushed to re-think their limits and are offered great support from their professors, classmates and friends in the process. Katie loves the campus in the fall season!

Outside the College

Outside of work, Katie enjoys reading novels, playing soccer, getting involved in local theater productions and thrifting furniture to re-do for her apartment.
