Katie was born and raised in Kalona, Iowa where she lived until moving to Cedar Rapids for college. She completed her Associates of Science at Kirkwood Community College along with her Emergency Medical Technician training (EMT-B). Prior to joining the Studio H2O team, Katie worked for a small nursing home as a social worker, she has also worked as a pharmacy technician as well as a phlebotomist for St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids. In October 2019, Katie joined the Studio H2O team as an Administrative Specialist. Her favorite part about working at H2O is the family atmosphere and the endless opportunities to learn about new products and how to help people find what best works for their space.
When she’s not at Studio H2O, Katie enjoys being outside and spending time with her family and friends and Golden Retriever, Sierra. She’s an avid fisher, hunter and hiker. When the weather isn’t so great, you can find Katie reading a good book or working on projects- wood, glass or whatever inspires her that day!
