Get to know Katie:

When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you doing it now?

I am a forever a Daddy’s girl, so at 10, I wanted to be just like Dad. My Dad spent his entire career as an Accountant for the Gillette Company. Although, I am not an accountant today, I did go on to Business School and have utilized many skills that I learned in my accounting courses.

Are you doing your dream job?

No – my dream job would be bartending at a Tiki Bar in the Caribbean. If only they paid a living wage…..

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?

I speak fluent sarcasm and I bake a mean cupcake.

What is your personal motto/mantra? Feel free to explain why?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. I always try to keep things in perspective and brush off the little things. It helps to keep me sane, and keep a smile on my face.

What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?

Efficiency, Keen eye for detail, and an overall positive attitude.

Hotdog or hamburger?

Hamburger, with cheese…and don’t forget the pickles!

What are three material things you can’t live without?

Flip flops, Fitbit Versa, and my Red Sox hoodie.
