A native Brenhamite and graduate of Texas A&M and Blinn College, Katie created PlanNorth as a place where designers could remember why they wanted to be an architect to begin with: a fun studio environment, the chance to do work that really matters, and a work environment where real life comes first. Katie is head over heels for buildings: renovations, masterplans, new construction, you name it…but projects for kids will always be #1. She loves seeing new places, near or far, and studying the small details that make buildings special, meaningful, and innovative. Katie spoke on the TEDx stage on the topic of Treating Top Performers like Leaders, and has served on numerous boards of directors including the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. Katie spends her “down” time at Hohlt Park, watching her two boys and their cousins play soccer, flag football, and baseball.
