“If you weren’t ready, you wouldn’t have the opportunity.”

Sophia Joan Short

Katie is a native of Dayton, Ohio and began her education at the University of Dayton, gaining valuable management experience and a passion for fundraising as Philanthropy Chair for the student development organization.   

She continued her education at University of Notre Dame, earning a Master’s in Nonprofit Administration this past May from the Mendoza College of Business. 

Katie gained experience in a year-long internship with the American Heart Association, where she focused on prospective donor research and community engagement efforts. Her time at Notre Dame included experience as a Strategic Planning Fellow for the South Bend City Church, and a Special Project Consultant for the Discovery Cube Children’s Museum. Additionally, she won the DEI Case Competition at Notre Dame where she and two fellow classmates addressed food insecurity, through the use of private equity and foundation funding. These experiences sparked her enthusiasm for consulting, recognizing the impact of effective teamwork and research driven projects. 

Katie believes in serving others and empowering teams, blending passion with purpose to build a better world.
