Hey hi, I’m Katie Rae! I was born and raised in the mitten state (Michigan). In 2018, I received my Bachelors of Applied Arts in Event Management and Environmental Education at Central Michigan University (Fire up chips!) and went on to receive my Masters of Education in Higher Education Student Affairs Leadership at Grand Valley State University in 2020. Before starting graduate school, I worked as an Events and Social Media Coordinator at Denver Rescue Mission in Denver, CO. While in grad school I worked as a Coordinator of Site Leader Training and Development with the Community Service Learning Center and an Assistant Living Center Director at Grand Valley State University. My professional interests are in Housing and Residence Life, Social and Environmental Justice, Service Learning, Leadership, and Sustainability. In my free time, I am an avid plant parent and coffee shop connoisseur. I also enjoy hiking and photography. I am so excited to join the Brandeis family!
