Katie is the kind of person that everyone holds in high regard. She is an incredibly hard worker, organized, thoughtful, intelligent, and patient. More important, though, is her character: she is a great friend to whomever she encounters. Katie's kindness and respect for others is incredibly rare, and it's the sort of trait that separates those successful few from all the others. I'm very lucky to know Katie, not only as a fellow student, but as a friend. I would recommend her to anyone.
