Katie is a Colorado native that has called the Grand Valley home for most of her life. A sense of giving and supporting her community and worthy causes was instilled in her by her parents. She often participated in fundraising events in support of charitable organizations in her youth. As a mother, she is also instilling these same principles and values in her son. Their family participates in activities such as serving at Meals on Wheels to deliver food to people confined in their homes as well as "adopting" a family for the holidays. She is passionate and enthusiastic about serving and giving to her community which is also demonstrated in her efforts to support local community groups, volunteer in schools, and especially has a heart for working to improve the lives of aging residents. Katie is a firm believer that it "takes a village" to accomplish incredible and meaningful community work and is thrilled to be joining A Little Help as the Western Slope Coordinator.
Katie's hobbies include running, hiking, and other recreation the Western Slope has to offer. She enjoys encouraging others to stay physically active. She has lead groups of seniors on hikes and even assisted a blind women to participate and run in a 10K race. She truly values connecting with people on a personal level and finds much fulfillment and reward in helping people and families to find the resources they need to live their best life. Katie looks forward to joining the like-minded team at ALH to continue her passion of helping her Grand Valley Community.
We are so excited to have a driven, passionate, and community-first team member like Katie!
