A native Houstonian, Katie Bailey Grahmann holds a BBA in Accounting and an MS in Finance from Texas A&M University and is a licensed CPA in the state of Texas. After investing seven years with PwC’s audit practice, Katie credits public accounting with giving her a passion for using numbers to make a difference and also introducing her to her husband, Scott. Katie currently works full-time for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo as their Chief Financial Officer.
For over a decade Katie has volunteered in the community with the Junior League of Houston. Eventually realizing the synthesis between her professional world and volunteer work, Katie stepped into financial roles within the League, serving as Community Treasurer and then Financial Vice President. She also currently contributes as a board member of Arms Wide Adoption Services and works each summer as a Corporate Fellow with University of Houston-Downtown’s Marilyn Davies College of Business.
In her free time, Katie enjoys bike rides with her Dad, pretending she can cook, and practicing to be an old married couple with Scott.
