Camp Activities Director
Katie was born in California and grew up in Rockford, Michigan. She never attended summer camp as a child, but fell in love with camp while watching The Parent Trap in 1998. She visited YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin six years later on an outdoor education field trip. She never forgot the magic of camp, and returned to Manitou-Lin in 2012 to start her camping career. During her time there, she held a variety of roles in overnight camp and outdoor education. In 2014, Katie received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising from Michigan State University.
Katie most recently supervised the aquatics department at Sherman Lake YMCA, and is thrilled to work at Frost Valley as the Resident Camp Activities Director. Her favorite thing about camp is the way it provides positive role models and formative experiences for campers from all walks of life! She is a member of both the Mid-America Camping Conference planning committee and the Summer Camp Society. In her free time, she loves reading, long-distance running, playing with dogs, traveling with her boyfriend, cooking and trying new restaurants.
