As assistant loan processor, Katie is an essential part of the Guardian team. Following industry guidelines, she works closely with our loan officers to ensure each loan has the proper documentation necessary to fund on time.

Katie grew up in Northeast Portland and received her BA in Art History at University of Puget Sound. She went on to earn her Master of Arts in Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Before Guardian, Katie worked in higher education for eight-plus years. Most recently, she was administrative coordinator for international affairs and economics at Lewis & Clark College, where she was instrumental in the organization of its annual International Affairs Symposium.

When Katie’s not helping homeowners get their keys on time, she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling.
