Katie is in her first year (2017-18) as Quincy University’s director of game operations and athletics marketing.

The Quincy native returned to her hometown after spending three years as the head women’s soccer coach at fellow NCAA Division II institution Academy of Art in San Francisco. There, she oversaw all operations of the women’s soccer program, including leadership development, recruiting, player management, budget, travel, academics, community engagement and fundraising.

Prior to that, Katie was the assistant women’s soccer coach at Quincy University under current head coach Dave Musso. She helped the program to six consecutive Division II Tournament appearances from 2008-13, including a Sweet 16 appearance in her final season on the bench. The Hawks also won GLVC championships in 2012 and 2013. While at Quincy, she also assisted in the operation of the athletic department. She served as an academic liaison for the football team, assisted with game operations at basketball, baseball and softball, and helped with fundraising, events, marketing and promotions.

Katie earned her Master of Science degree in education leadership from Quincy University in 2011. She earned her undergraduate degree in exercise science with a minor in communications from Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind. in 2007.
