Persistent inquisitiveness guides Katie to consume as much knowledge as possible at home and at work. This curiosity, paired with a refusal to live in ignorance, means that every project she touches is relentlessly researched. Asking questions and conducting thorough examination ensures that clients can make the best decisions possible based on complete, accurate, and up-to-date information.

As a health policy consultant, Katie uses her natural curiosity to conduct key informant interviews, where she can engage in structured and in-depth conversations with people in their areas of expertise. Katie conducts research and analysis on a variety of health and human services topics, including behavioral health, health and dental insurance coverage, child and adult vaccinations, and electronic medical records. She also assists with meeting and focus group facilitation and reporting, organizing and analyzing survey data, and working on strategic planning processes.

Even before PSC, Katie was always focused on improving people’s health. She brings years of experience working with the Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties.
