Katie grew up in the small town of Tripoli, Iowa. God brought her to faith in Jesus Christ through the VBS program and the faithful service of a sweet saint in her home church (Horton Baptist). She is currently in her final year at Faith Baptist Bible College in the Office Administration program (with a minor in Biblical counseling). She joined Grandview the fall of her sophomore year of college and began working in the office upon the start of her junior year. Katie plans to graduate in the spring of 2018 with a B.A. degree and continue in her secretary work at GPBC.
