Katie may have been born in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but she moved to Buckhannon when she was just four years old, so Upshur County has always felt like home to her. After graduating from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in English, she went on to earn a master’s degree in American Studies from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Although Katie has worked at several different news publications in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, she’s spent the majority of her career at The Record Delta. Katie loves cats, live music and local politics. She has also watched – and once owned on VHS – every single episode the “I Love Lucy” show.
