Employee Spotlight – Katie Safa

Tell us about your career at Slattery & Holman.
I joined the administrative support department in 2019 and moved into a staff accountant position in 2022.

Tell us a little about your family.
I live in Noblesville with my boyfriend, Matt, and our two adorable fur babies. My mom and stepdad and my dad live nearby in Zionsville, which is where I grew up.

What fictional place would you most like to visit? 
I’m a bit of a Potterhead so I’d love to see Hogwarts. I’m a Ravenclaw. But alas, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (at Universal Orlando) will just have to do.

What do you wish you knew more about? 
I bought my first house last year, so I wish I knew more about home improvement, landscaping, interior design, etc.

What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from home? 
Europe – I’ve traveled to Italy, Germany, Spain, and (twice to) Greece.

What is the most impressive thing you know how to do? 
I’ve been playing the trumpet since I was 10 years old. I regularly play in local groups such as the Indiana Wind Symphony and Zionsville Concert Band.

What is your favorite smell? 
I really like florals and sweet scents, especially coconut.

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?  
Probably escargot. I enjoyed it, although I admit it might’ve had less to do with the snails and more to do with the garlic butter.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I think shapeshifting is the ultimate superpower because it lets you take advantage of other superpowers. If I wanted to fly, I could turn myself into a bird. If I wanted to breathe fire, I could become a dragon. The possibilities are endless!
