Katie grew up on a small farm in Brookston, Indiana.
Her family has had between five and ten sows since she was eight-years-old, which helped Katie to develop a love for swine starting at a young age. Showing swine her whole life, Katie showed at both the local and state levels growing up.
Katie graduated from Ivy Tech Community College West Lafayette with an associate degree in animal science.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys helping her younger cousins with their 4-H swine projects, shopping, and attending as many concerts as she can!
