Program Manager

Hi, my name is Katie Schurke, and I am a Program Manager for WESCO Industries. I took this position over in August 2023. I have been with WESCO since May 2016. Before taking my Program Manager role, I was a Residential Coordinator for 3 years, QA department as the Quality Assurance Assistant Manager of Programming for 3 years, and when I originally was hired at WESCO, I was a team lead for 1 year.   

I was born and raised on a farm outside of Westside, IA. Graduating from Ar-We-Va in 2014 and then went on to attend DMACC in Ankeny. I am very involved in community activities. My husband and I have one daughter, Thea. In my free time, I love to be with my family and when the weather is right, I love to be outside and go camping!

Seeing so many individuals succeed in life and being able to transition back into the community is the best part of my job. - WESCO Industries Employee

Until someone has had their own experience with someone with a developmental disability, they just won't understand. - WESCO Industries Employee
