Katie Works for Us.
Personal Story: I have been a life-long south-east Michigan resident. There's almost nothing I love more than the smell of a fresh water lake or crackle of midwestern summer thunderstorm. In the summer, I look forward to long evenings on the back deck with friends and family. But I have also known the sting of recession and the struggles many Michiganders had during the downturn in our region's economy. I'm a proud mother and nurse. I have attended both the University of Michigan and Wayne State University and have always had a professional focus on people.
Professional Story: I first came to Ann Arbor as a student in 1992, back when we had the same area code as the entire Metro Detroit area. Now Washtenaw county has its own 734 identity and I'm proud to be a part of this burgeoning region. I have been a nurse in the ICU for almost ten years after receiving my BSN at the University of Michigan as part of their Second Career program. Additionally I am an active member of my nurse union and serve as a representative in my local and on the state board. I have used my strong voice to advocate for my patients, peers, and profession, and now I am ready to advocate for Washstenaw county residents too.
