Katie has been teaching middle school theater for the past two years. Her directing work includes Merry Christmas from Windsor High, her adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor; Richard III; Wild, Wild West Macbeth, again her own adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic; As You Like It; and Cinderella. Her love (some might call it an obsession) for Shakespeare propels her passion to impart the knowledge of him to her students. Another of Katie’s passions is writing. Her first book, Through the Fire, was published in September of 2013 and she continues to pursue publishing for her other works. She loves collaborating with other authors and helping them hone their writing skills. Katie has been heavily involved in youth ministry for the past five years. Discipling teenagers is one of her favorite ways to spend her time. When she is not working, Katie can be found at a coffee shop with a good book, kayaking with friends, or cheering on the Braves at Turner Field.
