Askew School of Public Administration and Policy, she has used her education and experience to promote sustainable community development, with a focus on community resiliency. Katie’s current responsibilities include serving as the lead planner on two large residential and mixed use projects (800+ units) in Manatee County, assisting with development agreement negotiations, preparing Notice of Proposed Change applications for Developments of Regional Impact (DRI), and rezone and site plan applications for moderate scale residential developments.
Katie’s goal has always been to work with clients who desire to make places that add value to the community, and promote a sense of community and place. She feels that she has been successful so far, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
