Katie was born on December 12, 1976 in Roanoke, Virginia, to Linda and Sandy Seay. She is a double Gator and a member of Alpha Xi Delta Sorority, graduating from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida with a Bachelors of Science (1998) and Masters of Arts (2001) degrees. After a few years in public relations, Katie had the opportunity to return to UF in 2005, working in the Alumni Office where she met her husband, Brian.

She enjoyed spending time with her three nieces, talking all things Taylor Swift.

She and Brian took multiple trips to Germany and Austria. They enjoyed spending time in the Bavarian and Austrian Alps and most recently visiting the Christkindlmarkt during Advent.

Katie was an avid Gator fan. She never missed a football game or a chance to cheer on the Orange and Blue.

Katie made everyone laugh. You felt welcomed and included when you were with her.

Katie was a kind and gentle soul who was loved by all who knew her. Her spirit will never be far from us.
