|3rd runner-up, Miss Delaware Teen USA 2006|
Katie is a junior studying at the University of Delaware, where she is majoring in Criminal Justice. Upon graduation from college her goal is to ultimately become a Delaware State Trooper. She is the daughter of Donna Fournier, a Nutrition teacher in the Christina School District.
Achieving the title of Miss Delaware USA has been a dream come true for Katie. She loves interfacing with people, which is evident in how she utilizes her spare time. During her spare time, and between study sessions, Katie maintains two jobs. She works as a waitress at Outback Steakhouse in Newark, Delaware; this allows her to meet and interact with new people on a daily basis. In addition, she works at the Variety Club (The Children's Charity) instructing high school children with a wide range of disabilities.
Katie is elated about representing her birth state of Delaware at the national level, as well as participating in local community charity events. When she competes at MISS USA her ultimate goal is to win the Miss USA title and her personal goal is to place within the top five finalists. In the history of this pageant, this is something that has yet to happen for State of Delaware. She feels as though she can make this dream become a reality.
Katie's favorite vacation spot is Riviera Maya, Mexico, where she enjoyed a trip of a life time this past summer with her best friend (her mom). She had an opportunity to zip-line through the Mexican terrain, snorkel in the underground caves, and parasail across the aqua blue ocean. In her leisure time she enjoys many physical activities, which include, going for a run with her dog Lola, biking with her mom, going to the gym as she prepares for the police academy, and spending time at the beach.
