Katie grew up in South East Manitoba just outside of a small town called Niverville. As a feminist, self-proclaimed “political vocalist”, anti-capitalist, environmentalist, cat-lover, community member, cook, yogi, gardener, avid-reader, retired traveller and many others… Katie believes she has too many passions in life.
After moving to Winnipeg following her two-year travel phase, Katie completed her degree in business with a focus in management. With her degree, Katie hopes to eventually work in the social enterprise or community economic development sector. This will allow her to integrate her passion for social justice, with her desire for more sustainable economics. Katie is really excited about the progress her city has already made, and looks forward to taking part in the continued changes going forward…she also LOVES long walks on the beach and romantic cuddle sessions…mostly with her cats though.
