Katie Birkenfeld

Katie was born in New York, but has lived in the Kansas City area since 2002. She has always had a deep love for animals, especially dogs. In college, she and her boyfriend adopted a Mastiff/Pit mix named Munch who has been the best breed ambassador. He’s also the four-legged family member, couch hog, and quarantine companion ever. Through volunteering at PRCKC, Katie hopes to keep the focus on the fact that pets are family members, and help this wonderful organization keep families together.

Katie attended Rockhurst University and then received a Masters at the University of Missouri Kansas City. She is currently a Marketing Manager for Quest Diagnostics. In her spare time, Katie enjoys playing both board games and video games, indulging in true crime podcasts, and exploring new restaurants in the Kansas City area.
