Katie started her involvement with the child welfare system when she moved to Florida from Delaware ten years ago and became a Guardian Ad Litem. It was both a rewarding and eye-opening experience for her. When she discovered The Hands & Feet, she was immediately drawn to the mission and wanted to get involved. Katie never imagined it would be to be a board member, but here we are! Katie has served on the board of a non-profit previously and was part of the leadership team for a camp for kids with cancer for 13 years. She has a heart to serve internationally on short term mission trips and believes her mission field is right here in South Florida as well. She is a registered nurse in the NICU at a Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital and considers it an honor that she gets to walk next to and love on the children and their families during their time in the NICU.
Katie and her husband have four children. They are also Gigi and Pop-pop to two adopted children and foster children in their daughter’s home. They are also expecting two more grandchildren this year. Katie and her husband are also in the process of becoming licensed respite foster parents in Palm Beach County.
