While a student at Baylor, Katie determined her life would be committed to doing something with eternal significance. Graduating in 2008 she wasted little time to put that plan into action. She and her husband, Ben, moved to Haiti to teach the children there. Shortly after arriving in Port Au Prince, an earthquake of historic proportions shook the island nation to its core and thrust Katie into the servant-leadership role of a lifetime. She helped relief workers, ministered to families, and taught the children that she had quickly grown to love. Katie's commitment and willingness to follow God's calling is truly an inspiration to us all.
