Once returning to the northwest, Katie earned her JD at Gonzaga Law after finishing undergrad at Whitworth. She accepted a position with the City of Spokane Parks Department to help manage the contracting and community outreach processes for the Riverfront Park Redevelopment. “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of a project that will transform Spokane’s downtown experience.”
Following this project, Katie transitioned to the commercial sector as a Contracts Manager for an elite Spokane SaaS start-up where she negotiated contracts with financial institutions, pharmaceutical companies, federal agencies, and many Fortune 500 organizations.
Real estate is somewhat of a tradition in Katie’s family. Her grandfather owned a firm, her mother practiced, and her aunt is currently a Broker in Sandpoint, ID.
