And as an accomplished former student athlete, Katie knows about determination.
A four-time state competitor for her high school golf team, Katie was recruited to play for the University of Washington. But in her second year with the Huskies, she broke her finger. Katie was released from the team.
Katie, determined to keep swinging, packed up her clubs and transferred across the Cascade Mountains to Eastern Washington University, where she played three seasons for the Eagles women’s golf team.
Now in her final year of law school, Katie is as ambitious as ever. But instead of working to cut strokes from her golf score, she’s focused on her future career.
“I’ve known from a very young age that I wanted to go into law.”
Katie says her vastly different experiences as an undergraduate at both a large university like the University of Washington, and a smaller-sized school like Eastern Washington University, influenced her decision to attend the University of Idaho College of Law.
“I like the small class sizes,” she explains. “There’s more interaction among students and faculty. You have the ability to be heard and to have your questions answered.”
While she’s no longer playing golf competitively, Katie remains active as a founding member of the College of Law Golf Club and as vice president of the Student Bar Association.
For Katie, success in golf, law school and life is about simply setting your mind on something and doing it.
“If you are dependent on no one but yourself, people will see that determination and react positively,” she says.
