Katie was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She decided to make a change in 2014, and moved to Vancouver, WA. While in Vancouver, she ended up with an opportunity to work for a great optometrist that trained her on everything she needed to know to succeed. After working in that office for almost 2 years, Katie decided to move somewhere with a little more sunshine, and less rain, so Bend it was! Wanting to stay in the field Katie joined Coffman Vision Clinic, and couldn’t be happier perusing a career as an optician. In her free time she loves to hike with her two dogs, try delicious food, and travel when possible.
