Katy attended Rothsay Public School and graduated in 2016. She then attended MSUM for a semester, and later began working in the food industry. She was a cook at several places in Fargo/Moorhead area. Katy was lucky enough to find her real calling recently - working with pet grooming. She was always happy to help others.
