Finance and Operations Manager

“I love being a part of such a dynamic team that is working to conserve open space and community access.”

Katie manages GVLT's financial systems, planning, analysis, and operations to ensure smooth organizational sailing. She was raised in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and spent summers agate-hunting along the shores of Lake Superior. Her love of the Rocky Mountain West grew from family visits to Wyoming where she enjoyed free rein among the sagebrush, wildflowers, and lodgepole. She graduated from Beloit College with a B.A. in Sociology and her career has spanned education and youth development as a classroom teacher and non-profit management and finances, launching a non-profit focused on teacher education and most recently serving as the COO at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Big Sky Country. While she loves mucking about excel sheets and financial data, outside of work you can find her gardening, horseback riding, hiking, bird-watching or appreciating the alpenglow from her patio with her husband, Justin, while their two cats, Oona and Toby, meow from the window.
