Get to Know: Katie Shields!

Name: Katie Shields

Start Date: June 2019

My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is … I’ve not been here quite a year so I’m still experiencing lots of fun things and making memories. One of my favorite so far was last year’s Main Event. Just seeing how hard staff, board, and volunteers work to put such a large event together like this was amazing. Seeing community and partners come out to support our mission is always fun to be a part of.

What I love most about my job is …Budgets…..just kidding! I love getting to support an agency and staff that works so hard to make a difference and that truly puts kids first in everything they do.

How has mentoring played a role in your life? I feel very fortunate to have had many great mentors in my life both personally and professionally. Not all of these have been formal mentor relationships but all have been equally important. The most meaningful mentoring relationships that I have had seemed to have formed organically.

When I’m not at work, you can find me … Spending time with my family (usually watching our oldest play soccer somewhere or shuttling the twins to a birthday party!); We also enjoy spending time on my family’s farm in Illinois.

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? There is still a lot I need to explore in Indy, but some of my favorite spots so far are the Zoo, Children’s Museum and Victory Field.
