Katie Inducted in Rugby Hall of Fame
Years ago, Katie worked to start a women's rugby team in the metro-Detroit area. In the late 1990s, there was still considerable opposition and controversy over women playing rugby! However, Katie knew how empowered playing the sport made her feel in college and wanted to offer that
experience to other women. She worked with the Detroit Rugby football club to start a women's side in the club, and today she was proud to know the continued success of the
many women playing today. She feels enormously honored to be included in the hall of fame. She knows leadership skills are learned in many different realms.

Katie got her start by advocating for her patients at the bedside, but she soon took that fight to the state and national level. Katie has visited elected officials in D.C. and Lansing to advocate for safe staffing for inpatient nursing. Katie isn't afraid to speak out for what is right, and she will do this in county government too.
