|I am so thrilled to share that we have hired Katie Watkins as our new Director of Finance and Operations.
Katie most recently worked as the Director of Operations for Base Camp, the organization that provided before and after care for children across PSD. Her experience in financial administration and oversight, systems-building and strategic planning and implementation are the tangible and foundational skills that make her the right person for this position.
But even more, our conversations throughout this process revealed an alignment in values, vision, as well as her capacity to lean in to all that we’ve built so far and to support it, and help it grow even more. I am especially excited about her understanding of and commitment to the particular challenges and opportunities in Northern Colorado. Because of her work at Base Camp, she has particular insights to the needs and challenges for families in our community, and a strong commitment to creating systems that allow all of us to flourish.
You can find out a lot more about Katie at her website here.
Katie will start officially on July 27th, and between now and then will be beginning to learn more about our church and our systems. We will be setting up conversations with our finance and stewardship teams, as well as some open conversations so that you can get to know her as well.
I really couldn’t be more excited about Katie joining our team, and I really look forward to you all getting to know her – and her getting to know you.
