About Katie

The 112th district includes many cities in the Metro East including parts of Edwardsville, Collinsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Granite City, and O’fallon.

Katie began her teaching career teaching middle school math at St. Paul First English School in New Orleans. After moving to IL, Katie worked at Triad and Highland before taking time off to raise 2 children. While raising Dean and Hannah, Katie continued working, earning a master’s degree at SIUE, before returning to teach at Edwardsville High School and SIUE. During this time, Katie noticed more and more education cuts happening at SIUE and cuts to her children’s education. In 2016, having never run for office, Katie decided to run against an incumbent and won!

While in Springfield, Katie has worked to support women in the workforce, making sure that the State Capital has feeding mother’s rooms. Katie works to support education by ensuring that schools are well funded to offer access to enriching opportunities for all students. This includes academic work with Dual Credit and AP, arts and sports programs, and especially vocational and technical courses. Katie chairs the Higher Education committee and sits on many other committees concerned with education. She also works much needed reforms to elections and mental healthcare. She works to provide proper equipment to firefighters and first responders.

Katie will continue to work for the 112th district and asks for your vote!

I am proud to have the support of these organizations:
