Katie’s Story
Self-Taught Techie
Originally wanting to be a surgeon, Katie attended Loyola for pre-medicine, but traded in her scalpel for a pen and a degree in English. Working in sales, service, and support, Katie’s interest in tech grew, so she taught herself each night, eventually teaming up with a mentor who prepared her for the technical opportunity she landed at HCSC.
