Hi Everyone!

My name is Katie Doerksen, and I am wife to Lorin and Mom to Lucy (3), Josie (1) and another little one, arriving early May. I love to cook, bake, work out and trail run, and have a long time love of coaching gymnastics and encouraging kids in sport.

Originally from Cranbrook, BC, I moved to the Gem area after university to take a job teaching Kindergarten in the nearby village of Rosemary. I soon met a local fella (Lorin) and we married in 2014. I’ve since moved on from teacher to stay-at-home Mom, where I get to spend my days with our girls experiencing farm and rural life!
