Katie Burroughs was born and raised in Monroe. She graduated from St Mary Academy in She attended and graduated from Siena Heights University with a degree in Business Administration. She was a pharmaceutical sales rep for many years before she decided to change careers and go into real estate. She loves being a realtor because it provides the opportunity for everything she needs professionally. It allows her to directly help people in such an important decision, guide them through the process and provide valuable information and education and she gets paid for it.
She feels like an extremely hard worker and feels good knowing that her clients are in such good hands for an important life event. She also thinks she will still be working when she is 91, like her father, because this is an excellent profession for someone who wants to work forever.
When she is not working she is with her family. She has three daughters, Nicole, Ann and Emily. Nicole is married and has two little girls, Minah and Maxine. Her middle daughter, Ann is married and lives in the Orlando area and has a new baby boy. Johnathan is two months old. Her youngest, Emily is single and lives in Detroit. She also spends quite a bit of time with her father. She adores her grandchildren and just can’t see them enough.
She is also involved with several service organizations. She is a member of Kiwanis and American Association of University Women. She feels giving back and helping others is a rewarding way to live one’s life.
