Katie holds a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy and theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville and a Master’s degree in Biblical theology from John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego. During that time Katie was able to study with some of the finest Catholic Biblical scholars in America today including Dr. John Bergsma, Dr. Michael Barber, and Dr. Scott Hahn.
In addition to her work at the parish, Katie has also served as an adjunct professor of leadership at Mercy College of Health Sciences and as an instructor for the Catechetical Institute, a program of formation for the laity founded by Jeff Cavins. She is a frequent guest on Iowa Catholic Radio and her online talks and courses, most recently featured by PrayMoreNovenas.com, have been heard by tens of thousands of people.
Katie grew up in Southern California and loves that the Cyclones conveniently sport the same colors as her hometown favorite, USC.
