Katie grew up in LaGrange Park, IL and has family very close to the med center. In undergrad she was given a small scholarship to continue playing piano, minored in English, and took part in various volunteer activities. During her medical school career, she was elected to the Class Officer Board for four years as a Curriculum Representative, serving as a liaison between medical students and faculty to improve both the basic and clinical curricula. She also volunteered time as a tutor for children in the psychiatric ward, helped fundraise for the Four Diamonds Fund and THON for families of children suffering from childhood cancers, and was a co-editor of the Class of 2008 Yearbook. As a fourth year medical student she extensively volunteered to teach first year students clinical skills with the help of patients in the Hershey Medical Center. She has won several academic scholarships including the Hammond Scholarship and the Dr. Irwin L. Baird Memorial Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. She was inducted into AOA in April 2008. Katie enjoys traveling, seeing live music, art and science museums, dancing, and spending time with friends and family.
