    Katelyn rocks. She is creative, driven, joyful, and a person who everyone should make the point to get to know. She is one of those people who is a game changer, and you would never know because of her servant heart and humble spirit. Like I said, she rocks.

    Weird habits? Katelyn has extremely loud footsteps for such a small person. Basically she stomps everywhere. Also she slams things down instead of setting them down. And sometimes she’ll yell instead of talk. Come to think of it, she does everything loudly. Including loving and being kind to people. She’s one of my most favorite people in the world, and I’m convinced you’ll feel the same before she leaves.

    This girl is such a blessing in my life. Full of the Lord’s spirit and joy, Katelyn is one of the most genuine people I know. She’s a hard worker, always doing things for others and not wanting or expecting anything in return. She’s passionate and has such a heart for the world, always going to great lengths to make it a better place. Overall, Katelyn is a very special person that you’re lucky to have a part of your team

    I have known Katelyn all her life and I have never known her to put less than 100% into whatever she is involved in (except for the year she thought she wanted to play youth soccer). She is passionate about helping those in need. Even if I were not her mom, I would think she was a pretty remarkable person. I think you’re going to enjoy having her intern for you this summer! (but I”m going to miss her).
