Katie was born in Stafford Virginia and as a young girl moved to Richmond. While attending Clover Hill High School, she could be found on the band field practicing her color guard routines with the Marching Cavaliers. Katie attended Randolph-Macon College and graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. After college, Katie moved to Washington, DC interning for a nonprofit organization specializing in job training, food distribution, and education advancements for economically disadvantaged communities. This is where she found her passion for helping people through troubling times.
When her internship ended, Katie moved back to Richmond and began working for an overseas cargo shipping company. Over her two years with this company, Katie held a couple different titles transitioning from a temporary position to a permanent employee as a Marine Technical Analyst – Vessel Stowage Planner. While in this position, Katie honed her time management skills and strong attention to detail. Katie believes the skills she learned at her last position will aid her to be successful as a Legal Assistant for Parks Zeigler. She is excited for this career change and intrigued to learn another new field of business while maintaining her passion for helping others through difficult times.
Outside of work, Katie and her boyfriend, Kyle, enjoy renovating his childhood home, where she recently moved to Virginia Beach. Together they have two cats, Pinkerton and Fluffybutt, and a new puppy, Cletus. Katie can be found at the beach enjoying the sun, sand, and waves or visiting her family in Richmond and Fredericksburg on the weekends. During her free time, Katie enjoys taking Cletus on adventures and visiting new places in Virginia Beach or creating fun manicure/pedicure designs for herself and friends.
