Katie married her husband, Cody Schweinefus, in 2016. When it came time to start a family, they moved back to Decorah and Katie began work in the marketing department at Luther College. She became a licensed realtor in Iowa in March 2022. "We knew we wanted our kids to grow up in the Decorah area because of all it has to offer. Decorah has great schools, outdoor activities, family-owned restaurants, but most of all, great people. We have found our home here and I am so excited to be able to help others do the same."
Katie and Cody have two young boys, Duke and Tripp. You can often find the family riding bikes on the Trout Run Trail, eating ice cream at the Whippy Dip or Sugar Bowl, looking for Decorah Rocks on the trails, or feeding fish at the Fish Hatchery.
