Hello, my name is Katie Gerber. I am from a small town called Fairview, just west of Erie, Pennsylvania.

I plan to major in finance within the College of Business Administration. After several visits at Pitt, I knew I had to enroll in the University because of all the opportunities that Pitt Business could offer. The Woodcock Global Honors Fellowship is the first of these many opportunities, and I had to take advantage. Having the chance to study abroad and earn credits before the fall semester of my freshman year is too amazing to pass up on.

At the beginning of this summer, I traveled to Punta Cana with my family. The trip was my first experience outside of the United States.

When I am not working at Subway, I enjoy spending time with friends, taking an occasional yoga class, visiting the beaches on Lake Erie and watching the beautiful sunsets. In high school, I was honored to be crowned Homecoming Queen, to speak at graduation, and to graduate summa cum laude.
