Katie Latta started with Give Back in September 2018 and currently serves as the Assistant Program Director for the state of Kansas. In 2004, Katie graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations from Missouri State University and shortly thereafter began a career working in the insurance field where she was a claims adjuster, communications specialist, corporate trainer, and supervisor.

Katie transitioned to working in higher education in August 2012 when she started a job at Ottawa University. There, she worked in enrollment, recruitment, and academic advising. Katie earned her Masters Degree in Human Resources in 2016 from Ottawa University. During her time there, she developed a passion for guiding students through their degree programs and their overall college experience. 

Give Back is a great fit for Katie because she is able to use all of her previous experiences in her current role. Katie loves getting to know the students, building relationships with mentors, and developing resources for both students and  mentors. When Katie isn’t working, she loves to spend time with her two children. Katie also enjoys reading, being outdoors, and watching sports.
