Katie studied to become a teacher at Brighton University and spent a few years teaching in London before moving back to teach more locally, in Sussex. For the past five years she has been a foster carer and feels very privileged to have loved and nurtured some very special young people through a challenging stage in their lives. She also works caring for young people with complex disabilities.
She has been ‘horse-mad’ since the age of five and has previously worked in roles caring for competition horses. She now loves to help the young people at Jamie’s Farm Lewes spend time connecting with the gorgeous horses, Toffee and Nessie.
She loves being outdoors and even runs marathons as an excuse to spend the day outside and explore new areas of the countryside. She has four ponies of her own (Star, Dipsy, Wellie and Oscar) and a very loyal and lovable Labrador called Olive.
