Katie manages CFM public affairs projects in Southwest Washington, leads the firm’s new state lobbying operation in Olympia and assists the Federal Affairs team in grant writing. A licensed attorney, she joined CFM after a successful career as a political consultant advising on large-scale public works projects, bonds, levies and initiatives, as well as political races. Katie spearheaded the campaign in which Vancouver voters approved a $42 million, seven-year housing fund for very low-income households. She began her career while still a college undergraduate as a policy adviser to Clark County commissioners. Katie graduated from Clark College and Washington State University Vancouver before taking her law degree from Willamette University. While attending Willamette, she participated in legal programs in Shanghai, China and Sydney, Australia. Katie is a third-generation Washingtonian from a family that has lived in Clark County for 80 years. She, her husband and twin preschoolers stay busy on a 10-acre tract in Yacolt and enjoy antiquing and “playing tourists” at Pacific Northwest attractions. Katie is a graduate and board member of Leadership Clark County, where she mentors young women interested in the law and politics.  [Secret ambition: To have her home and garden featured in Better Homes & Garden]
