Katie is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art & Design. Before joining the Charles IT team, she worked as a buyer for an e-commerce jewelry retailer. This background in the fast paced fashion industry gave her the experience to take on the ever changing technology world. Katie comes from a family rooted in IT, as a kid her dad was determined to teach her to repair computers. They both quickly learned that she was better at shopping than computer repair and she found a knack as a buyer. In addition to procuring the latest and greatest technology, Katie is a car enthusiast and enjoys working on her two Ford Mustangs. When she’s not in the garage, she also enjoys spending weekends hiking with her dog Coby.
