Meet the Staff: Katie

“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”

-Ephesians 1:18-19                 

Hometown: Dyersburg, TN

College: University of Tennessee Chattanooga – GO MOCS!

Degree: BA Chemistry

Birthday: June 28th (and I get to spend it with you guys!)

Dream job: Missionary medical doctor and later open up my own pancake restaurant

Hobbies: Soccer, traveling, playing with kids, coffee dates, making s’mores and

pancakes (or waffles – I don’t discriminate), stargazing, running, telling puns.

Favorite book: The Irresistible Revolution by Shaine Claiborne

Favorite colors: Blue or green (AKA half my closet)

Interesting fact: With red hair and blue eyes, I make up less than 1% of the population. Call me endangered.

Moments where I encounter God: I honestly experience God the most through water and laughter. Feeling water and knowing the intricacy of its form as well as its renewal in baptism is amazing to me, and I love laughter because it is the most tangible way I witness and experience joy.

Why I wanted to be on staff: I want to share the love, the joy, and the peace I have within my heart with each of you who will be here this summer. We are all one family in Christ, and I love seeing that lived out. So get to know me while you’re here! 

What I am most looking forward to this summer: I experienced true community and fellowship for the first time at camp. It is such a vulnerable and liberating place to be, and I believe that you can learn so much about yourself through scripture, worship, and your relationships with other people in this place. I am excited to facilitate that here at the LEC and experience that again with everyone who comes this summer.

Anything else? I love high fives, and I really like knowing people’s names. Can’t wait to meet you all!!
