Katherine, known to many as "Katie", grew up in an antique house in New York State, an hour northwest of New York City. She has never been a Yankees fan. There was an acre of land and assorted animals including the usual cats and dogs, as well as a gerbil, a pony, goats, a pig and even a skunk.
After graduating from college, Katie taught elementary school in Rochester, New York, and after four winters in the snow belt, went to Sydney, Australia to teach for the New South Wales Department of Education. Looking for a change, she worked in retail, an engineering library and the journalists' library for John Fairfax Newspapers. The next opportunity was working for two educational publishers as a Reading and Language Consultant, traveling around Australia and New Zealand.
While in Australia, Katie married a Brit and bought a condo on the North Shore of Sydney. Their daughter was born in Sydney and after eleven years in Australia, they sold the condo and moved to the States, where their son was born before moving to Massachusetts and buying a home in Ipswich in '83. After years as a stay-at-home mom, Katie worked as a tutor, an adjunct English instructor at North Shore Community College, and in School-to-Work for the North Shore Workforce Investment Board/North Shore Career Center.
Looking for another new challenge, in 2006 she got her real estate license and has been busy with her real estate career ever since. She went on to earn her ABR, e-PRO, SRES and SRS designations. Utilizing her teaching background, she works on building trust and long-term relationships and helping clients to understand each step of the process, often beginning with a conversation around a kitchen table or in a coffee shop.
Katie is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Beverly, a supporter of the Ipswich Library and the Ipswich Museum, and a member of North Shore Women in Business and the North Shore Business Forum. When not working on real estate, she enjoys reading, traveling to England to visit family, watching BBC News and HGTV, and being a fan of the Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics. One day, she would like to learn to play golf.
