Marketing & Community Engagement Manager
My name is Katie Knight-Skarshaug, and I’m a born and raised Kansas Citian. I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a BA in Journalism, and recently got my Master’s Degree in Global Development and Justice from Multnomah University. I am so lucky and so grateful to have joined the USC staff as the Marketing and Community Engagement Manager in October 2021!
My first experience with the USC was actually about 10 years ago when I was in high school, and I volunteered with elementary school students over a summer. This was my first exposure to socioeconomic differences and inequality, and it changed me for the rest of my life.
After that experience and a couple of human rights classes in college, I knew that I wanted to use the blessings and gifts that the Lord had given me to serve other people. I’m now more convinced than ever that Christ calls His followers to love and serve those in need, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life doing just that.
When I’m not at the USC you can find me walking my dog Basil, cooking in the kitchen with my sweet husband Zach, going for a run, or taking cross-country road trips.
