Katie is a military spouse originally from Florida, and has been back on the Gulf Coast since 2017. She received her bachelor’s degree at Troy University before meeting her husband and moving to the Midwest. She became a mother in 2016 to her son Ben and is the bonus mom of 15-year-old Donny. She made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom when her son was 8 months old, and they got orders to move back down to the coast. Her days consist of play groups, arts & crafts, and playing outdoors. In her spare time she enjoys getting pedicures, binge-watching her favorite shows, going on walks, reading, and trying out new local restaurants. Katie looks forward to exploring her new city and surrounding areas, meeting other moms, and finding fun, family-friendly events to enjoy with her family.
