An interesting tidbit
An avid traveler, Katie lives by the saying, “when in Rome”. That philosophy helped her survive a sandstorm while camping in the Sahara Desert and while rappelling into one of the many ice caves on a climbing expedition of Sólheimajökull Glacier in Iceland. Her adventures have also included partaking in local delicacies to fully experience each place she visits.
