Katie spent her childhood in a variety of places - Colorado, Maryland, Connecticut before her family settled in Charlotte, North Carolina for her teenage years. She attended the UNC-Chapel Hill for undergrad and afterwards moved to Charlottesville to complete her Master’s in Teaching at the UVa.
Since then, Katie has worked in Albemarle Public Schools as a bilingual immersion Spanish teacher. Katie met her husband Parker in 2018 and they married in 2020 - right in the middle of the pandemic! Katie and Parker have been members of Tabernacle PCA for 2 years.
They live in Stuarts Draft with their 2 cats and flock of chickens. The Dells are eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child, a daughter, in September 2023.
Katie is thrilled to be starting this new chapter of life as a mother. Her hobbies include: swing dancing, board games, reading, and occasionally sewing. She and Parker love to travel and explore new places.
Katie is excited to begin serving in Women's Ministry and is hopeful that her organizational and leadership skills from the workplace will translate well into helpful contributions at Tab. As Assistant Director, Katie will be supporting Daza both practically and in prayer. She is also co-leading one of the summer women’s book studies and helping to plan the fall Women’s Conference. Katie is most passionate about looking for ways to include and serve women who feel on the fringes of the church community.
If Katie had to pick a verse of particular meaning for her life, it is John 3:14-15. That’s not a typo. Ask why.
