It has always been a dream of Katie’s to live on the island, and during this year she was able to make this dream a reality. She has family that lives on the island and is excited to be closer to them. She loves the island’s natural beauty and spends her free time exploring everything it has to offer. You will often see her hiking, biking, boating, and whale watching from Lime Kiln Point.
Katie also spends a lot of her time trying to keep up with her two teenagers’ busy schedules. They are all very active in the community and cannot wait to experience the full offerings of the island. She is excited to work with such a dynamic team and looks forward to serving the island community.
