Katie Dusing is an up-north Minnesota small-town girl with Forrest Gump-like experiences working on growing the seeds sewn in her path trusting that who has placed them there knows exactly where it leads and why. Meanwhile, getting paid to tell cops where to go.
Katie grew up the oldest of two and graduated from Aitkin High School. She was hired as a cheerleading coach at Crosby-Ironton High School for two years while attending Central Lakes College in Brainerd. She Graduated with an AA in law enforcement and AA in general studies.
Katie Was hired as a police officer at the age of 21 for the City of Foley and, also, a competitive cheer team coach at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School (winning a state cheer championship). She obtained her first full-time position as a 911 operator for Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office.
She attended and graduated with a BA in criminal justice from St. Cloud State University, then was hired as Waite Park Police Department's first-ever female officer.
She left "the road" and was hired as a 911 operator for Stearns County Sheriff's Office. She then got married to husband, Kyle (who works for Benton County); gave birth to two wild but precious boys (now 12 and 14).
Katie became an independent distributor with Premier Designs jewelry when boys were 1 y/o and 3 y/o. She is involved in her church, serving on the leadership board for the past five years. She was recently elected to The St. John's Boys' Choir board of directors.
Katie's priorities are 1-God, 2-Family and 3-Career.
