Katie joined the Lifeline team in January 2018 and serves as our Communications Specialist, handling all things social media, community engagement, media relations, and web development! She’s originally from Helena, Alabama (hometown of American Idol superstar Bo Bice.. AKA the one that was up against Carrie Underwood). She attended The University of Alabama where she received a degree in Public Relations and watched the Tide roll to 27 victories in Bryant Denny Stadium (legendary, roll tide). In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time with friends, especially when food is involved, and being outside. If she had to eat one type of food for the rest of her life, it would definitely be Mexican food. Her favorite place to travel is California, but she has really awesome friends that live all over the country so going to visit them is always a good time. She spent a summer in Uganda so Africa will always hold a special place her heart but she hopes to travel to Nepal one day soon. Her three simple joys are fresh flowers, game nights, and roadtrips (followed closely by Johnnyswim’s instastories of Joaquin – if ya know, ya know). Katie’s favorite thing about working at Lifeline is having the opportunity to meet so many families and community partners that truly desire to see hope of the gospel taken to the ends of the earth. She considers it a sweet privilege to play a small part in Lifeline’s mission to manifest the gospel to vulnerable children and she’s thankful that the Lord allows us to be apart of His beautiful story of redemption.
