After graduating from Penn State University, where she studied psychology and worked as a teaching assistant for the course “Psychology of Adolescence,” Katie earned a 4.0 GPA while completing two master’s degrees at Columbia University in psychological counseling and school counseling. During her time at Columbia, Katie also spent a year in the counseling office at the High School for Math, Science and Engineering in New York City, where she guided a caseload of students through the college application process and ran a regular stress management support group for seniors.
