About Me

Katie Williams, MSW

Travel Social Worker

Hello and welcome! I’m Katie. My (permanent) home is in the Silicon Valley of California. I currently work as a traveling master’s level social worker in the United States. I am a follower of Jesus, a long-distance dog mom to a corgi named Leo, and a total free spirit. When I am not working or traveling I love reading, blogging (of course), thrifting, spoiling my dog, and finding new sources of caffeine.
