About Katie:
From a young age, Katie has been fascinated by puzzles. As an Analytics Consultant, data has enabled her to piece together solutions through visualizations. She spent five years at Louisiana State University, completing both a bachelor’s degree in information systems and decision sciences as well as a master’s degree in analytics. During college, she developed an interest in healthcare from part-time jobs in durable medical equipment sales, medical billing and home health services. A native of Ville Platte, LA, Katie is a proud Cajun! Contrary to popular belief, however, she does not wrestle alligators in her backyard. She prides herself in creating great Cajun dishes and can think of no better way to spend a free evening than at a crawfish boil. When she’s not wrapped up in the newest dystopian novel, she spends her free time improving her piano and sand volleyball skills. A recent recruit to America’s Pastime, her current mission is to find other Atlanta Braves fans across the country. Katie travels with InterWorks as an analytical road warrior, but she always looks forward to visiting her family back at home.
