Q&A

As the Chief Resources Officer, Katie is responsible for finding, developing, and retaining Concord's growing network of consultants. She is particularly interested in partnering with the Sales and Delivery teams to ensure we are providing our clients with top talent and doing our best to retain them.

Katie joined Concord in early 2012 as the Resource Manager, an entirely new role formed out of necessity to keep talented consultants engaged and happy. Forming relationships was her specialty and she developed a strong program to maintain Concord's network. Prior to her time at Concord, Katie worked in retail management and majored with a B.S. in Psychology and a combined minor in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.

Do you have any fun or exciting hobbies?
Volleyball, teaching piano lessons, dabbling on the guitar, online window shopping, hunting, decorating, spoiling my niece and nephew, and basket weaving. Just kidding. I’m not into crafts.
Tell us one thing no one knows about you.
For the job that I have, it usually surprises people that I’m an introvert. I also love Celine Dion. And cats. Despite all of that, I’m really fun to hang out with.
If you could be any superhero who would you be and why?
Black Widow – that’s what my four-year-old nephew calls me. I’m not sure what her super power is but when we are play fighting, she usually wins. I’m sure she’s nice.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
Australia/New Zealand. I’ve been to many places in Europe and I think I like that accent the best. Also, that would mean I survived 25+ hours in an airplane without heavy sedation which would be a huge accomplishment since I hate flying. In all seriousness, I love experiencing other cultures and landscapes and would love to spend a month there!
Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? If so, who?
Lindsay Lohan (on several occasions). While nobody specified which era, I’m sure it was pre-2007 when she was a cute childstar instead of a lunatic drug addict. I’ve also been told I look like (and act) like Jennifer Lawrence. Not sure that’s a compliment, either. I also was told on one occasion I look like Kate Beckinsale, but I’m 99% sure our only similarity is our name. I need new friends.
If you could have unlimited storage for one thing, what would it be?
Tupperware! And, storage on my phone.
What is your favorite summer activity?
Live music and a patio. Volleyball. Pontoons. And, maybe a cold beverage or two.
What is your favorite TV channel?
BRAVO (the real reason I pay for cable). But, I’m also a nerd and love documentaries, the History Channel, Discovery Channel, A&E, and ID.
What is one thing you did as a kid that you should have gotten in trouble for, but never got caught?
I was a goody two shoes so as long as you don’t ask my sister, my answer is “nothing.”
