Katie is a goal-oriented project and program manager. She’s collaborative and always puts client needs first. When she starts new projects, Katie quickly absorbs the objectives and details. She works closely with her team to execute high-quality work and deliver it on time.
As a team lead, Katie communicates actively. This ensures stakeholders understand project objectives and receive timely updates throughout the project process. Her communication and collaboration skills help align the project with the organization’s people and operations.
In addition to her soft skills, she also has an impressive array of useful business knowledge and expertise with tools.
Katie is a certified Professional Scrum Master (PSM I.) She earned her BBA from the University of Iowa.
Katie likes to pause for moments of gratitude throughout her day. She quotes from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Once she and her husband had children, these pauses became more important. When they have free time together, the Baus family hunts for hidden treasures, geocaching while they hike in nearby parks. Otherwise, Katie enjoys crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and she likes to spend time with friends.
