Katie Lardy

Sr. Manager of Operations

Katie Lardy joins the School of Communication Sciences & Disorders as Student Services Manager after working for nine years in the Career Development Center at Pacific University as the Assistant Director and Pathways Coordinator. She also coordinated the Advantage Scholars Program.

Katie genuinely enjoys working with, and supporting, students through their educational journey. Katie graduated from Pacific University with a double major in Spanish and Integrated Media, which fueled her love of literature, photography, and travel through an eight-month study abroad in Quito, Ecuador. Taking photographs at Machu Picchu was a highlight!

Prior to working at Pacific, Katie served as a Marketing Coordinator for the Intel Teach to the Future Program and as a Communications Coordinator for the chamber music festival, Music @ Menlo in Atherton, CA.

Outside of work, Katie finds great joy spending time with her husband, Paul, and two young daughters, Bella and Bailey, experiencing life through their eyes and pursuits. In addition, Katie highly values volunteering for the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce Leadership Hillsboro Program as an advisory council member. She values being involved in learning about the multi-dimensional needs of the community and helping to connect motivated individuals with others to learn how they can collaborate in order to make our communities better for present and future generations.
