Originally from the midwest, Katie Murnion moved to Helena with her family in the 2000’s and fell in love with Montana. Katie studied Microbiology, Wilderness Studies, and Secondary Science Education at the University of Montana, and had the pleasure of being a science educator for five years in various parts of the state. Katie is passionate about science, education, fiber arts, and anything outdoors. When not chasing after two adorable pet house rabbits, Katie enjoys adventuring outside and downtown with her husband Connor, often coming home with more books, rocks, and baked goods than she started with. She is proud to serve her favorite community (Helena!) while working at the Helena Area Community Foundation.
