Get to know Katie—
What inspired you to work in financial services?
I love working with people and helping them achieve their hopes and dreams. My job doesn’t feel like work when I enjoy what I do and who I get to work with so much!
What is your personal philosophy?
Provide the highest level of services and advice to my clients—even when that means telling them the truth they might not want to hear.
What are your hobbies and interests?
Family is my number one! I love spending time and traveling with my family. My husband, Gerry, and I have two children, Molly and Patrick. We also have a Chocolate Lab (Ginny) and a Yellow Lab (Finn). Patrick and I are working on attending games at all the MLB stadiums.
If you weren’t a financial advisor, what would your job be?
I’d definitely be a professional hockey referee.
