Katie graduated magna cum laude from Hillsdale College in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in English and French. After graduation, she spent four years organizing overseas travel for Passages, a non-profit that provides trips to Israel for college students. While working closely with students and professors, she became disheartened by the level of censorship she saw on campuses across the country. Her desire to use her writing to defend civil liberties made FIRE a perfect fit.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys picking up foreign languages, journaling copiously, and searching for the next best bubble tea spot.
