Hello! I’m Katie - a former Uptown Charlotte resident who has found happiness in the suburbs of Gaston County. By day, I’m an administrator and human resources professional, but I’m always challenging myself to take on or learn something new! I’m alumna of UNC Charlotte and Appalachian State, but a current Mountaineer at WVU, working on my second Masters Degree. Many people call me crazy, but I love to learn!
I travel as much as possible in my free time, with a goal of visiting each of the fifty states in my lifetime and I’m seventeen states in! I’m an avid sports fan - football, basketball, baseball, racing, you name it. Most recently, I’ve found a love for crafting.
I will be hosting monthly girl’s night out events across the county, sharing delicious recipes, teaching you all of my tricks on saving money and introducing you to my favorite travel spots. We will get together at a different venue each month to hang out and have a great time!
Describe yourself in three words:
Motivated. Compassionate. Dependable.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
For most of my life, I have always dreamt of being an attorney. I still hope that one day that dream comes true!
How do you maintain a work/life balance?
I’m different from most people in that I really enjoy working. I tried taking a ‘staycation’ once and it was super boring for me. However, finding hobbies that are not work-related has definitely been a goal for me, in 2018. I try to plan my week out in advance and say “Okay, let’s leave the calendar blank on [Friday] and do something fun, or do nothing at all”.
What websites do you visit every day?
Facebook, Pinterest and local news sites
What are your top 3 favorite people/places/things in Gaston County?
Catawba River. Downtown Areas. Parks!
What is your goal for retirement?
I’ll be eligible to retire at 53 and would love to spend the immediately following years traveling all across the world. If I do not get to go before retirement, I’ll make sure to get to: France, Italy, Germany, Australia and Thailand!
I'm Katie and I'm so excited to be bringing Housewives in the City to Gaston County! I'm a resident of Mount Holly. I absolutely love traveling, sports and I'm always up to learning something new. I cannot wait to meet all of you!
