Katie comes to the Erb Institue with a five-year career in brand management in the consumer-packaged goods industry. She set her sights on Michigan, in large part, because of the Erb Institute. She knew it would give her the opportunity to deeply pursue two areas of interest: finance and sustainable business practices. At Michigan, she has focused on venture capital and has enjoyed learning about the space immensely. She is actively involved in Ross’ organization Women Who Launch. Katie holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Southern California. In her spare time, she loves trying new recipes, hiking, and listening to podcasts.
