Katie was raised in West Vancouver, BC, but has called the Townships home for almost eight years. She fits the Vancouverite stereotype fairly well- yes, she loves yoga and sushi- but she also considers herself a proud Quebecer (with a strong affinity for maple syrup and snowshoeing).
Originally, Katie moved to Sherbrooke to learn French, then fell in love (in more ways than one!) with Quebec and decided to stay. Over the past several years, she has worked in Sherbrooke, Coaticook, and Magog, and has earned an MBA from Concordia University in Montreal. She is still learning French.
Katie is beyond excited to join the Townshippers’ Association as Employment Liaison Coordinator for a newly minted pilot project that addresses youth employment in the region. She hopes to make a difference serving the English-speaking community in this role, and looks forward to all the people she will meet along the way.
