Katie co-leads a ministry at her church that was founded on the call of James 1 "to look after orphans and widows in their distress." This led to a logical partnership with Otino Waa in 2014, and multiple team visits to the village soon after. Katie is a physician assistant and looks forward to using her medical knowledge and skills to continue serving in northern Uganda. She lives with her husband and 4 boys in Bend, OR. They enjoy running, skiing and biking in the mountains.
