Coming from a large, Italian family, Katelyn loves to bring people together, especially when it involves exploring new places. She spends much of her free time biking or running on the Monon Trail or swinging on her porch with a good book in hand. Prior to joining IndyHub, she was a Campaign Manager at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

A proud alumna of Butler University, she enjoys cheering on the Dawgs and volunteering with education-focused organizations, like School on Wheels. She is an avid green tea drinker, frequently sings off-key to Andy Grammer music, and is a new dog-mom to her goldendoodle pup, Oakley.
