Katie is the Board’s newest member, having joined The William S. Bowman Trust in May 2017. She was an elementary school teacher in the Derry Township School District and is now a stay-at-home-mom. Her interest in horticulture began in high school while working summers at the Hershey Rose Gardens. As a neighbor and friend of Bill Bowman, Katie greatly admired his talents and valued his landscaping advice. She was inspired by him to improve the beautification of her own downtown historic property. Katie is a lifelong resident of Hershey and believes in the significance of beautifying the town for residents and visitors alike.
