My name is Kate Busch, and I joined the SJMC Family in June of 2023 as the administrative assistant. Prior to joining the Drake Family, I worked for 8 years as an elementary school counselor with DMPS. Ahead of moving to Des Moines, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 2015 with my M. Ed. - Counseling Psychology and completed my undergrad at Iowa State University, graduating in 2012 with a B.S. in Psychology.
In addition to working in the SJMC, I also coach high school girls cross country. I'm a huge track & field (running in general) fan, so I love that I get to be a part of the all the magic around the Drake Relays. Outside of Meredith Hall & Coaching, I'm an avid runner myself and I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and son.
