Full name: Catherine Swanson, but I definitely prefer "Katie". I'm not kidding either! I spell Catherine with a C and Katie with a K. I was named after the College of St. Catherine (where my mom, my sister and I graduated college), so that was how it turned out.
Dream College: I got my Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the College of St. Catherine (now St. Catherine University, I suppose), and if I had a "dream college" it would be to go back and get my Masters of Arts in Organizational Leadership at St. Kate's. It's a great program!
Health: I would like to say that I am a pretty healthy person. I'm not obsessed with making all the perfect choices, but I do try to stay healthy. I've done long distance running up to a half marathon, triathlons, and I love to roller blade with my dog!
Pets: I already mentioned my dog: he is a half Springer Spaniel/half Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. His name is Cody, and he is very sweet! I have a very affectionate cat, named Apollo, who is currently snoozing on my feet. And I have my little tank-mate, Noodle - a Common Musk Turtle. At his biggest he'll be about the size of my palm, so he's the perfect size for me.
Spouse: I am married to a wonderful man, Tony Swanson. He currently works for Apple as a Senior Product Specialist. I have learned more about computer technology in the past year than I ever knew existed! He's even inspired me to save for an iPad.
