As an Accounting Manager, Katie is responsible for bookkeeping and financial reporting for Willow Street client families, focusing on cash management, bill pay, and account reconciliations. She works closely with Relationship Managers to ensure our clients’ trust activity, no matter how unique or complex, is captured promptly and accurately.
Katie brings an extensive background in hospitality, property management, and real estate to Willow Street. Most recently, she managed accounting and bookkeeping at Outpost, Inc., a Jackson Hole property management company. She also holds real estate licenses in both Wyoming and Idaho.
Katie earned her BA in Spanish and BS in Economics from Sewanee: The University of the South in Tennessee. She had the opportunity to blend these concentrations for a semester when she studied global trade organizations and Spanish literature in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In the same year she traveled to China and India and gained insight into these countries’ culture, economic policies, and growth.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Katie has lived in the Jackson Hole valley since 2013. She spends her time long distance trail running, mountain biking and backcountry skiing with her partner and their two dogs. When she is not outdoors, Katie can be found at her sewing machine making clothes.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I love to sew and would like to learn how to make my own patterns. While I have gained an understanding of how clothes are constructed from purchased patterns, I would like to design my own garment and scale the piece for multiple sizes and styles. The mathematical component of design intrigues me. I will be thrilled to eventually wear a garment that I design and complete from start to finish.
What’s the Favorite Place You Have Traveled to and Why?
I had an incredible experience traveling to Japan. Each place I visited encompassed one of my top interests: I ski toured in Hokkaido, explored the fashion district in Harajuku, Tokyo, and savored the food in Kyoto. There is an abundance of culture to absorb — for example, the temples and bath houses emit a peacefulness that is hard to find elsewhere. I also have an appreciation for well-planned and executed public transportation, and the Japanese train systems are top notch!
