Katie Acheson

Out-of-School Time Specialist

Bad dad joke aficionado, Katie most recently hails from Denver, CO with a pocketful of jokes and a love for making people laugh. For over twenty years, Katie has worked with children and families and welcomes a new adventure here at UAN. Through sheer tenacity, Katie completed an Associates degree in Child Development and a Bachelors in Human Services. Between growing up in Idaho and spending over a decade in Denver, Katie has a deep love for nature and enjoys hiking, fishing, and camping at every opportunity. When she’s not blazing trails or doing stand-up comedy (even if it is only to her pets), Katie writes short stories about the underdogs and their determination to come out on top.
