Katie has been working as a support to her sister Theresa since the inception of Rachel’s Vineyard. She came on full-time in 2003 to help with the explosion of growth within the ministry. Katie enjoys spending time with her 18 nieces and nephews who keep her very busy. She enjoys theater and a good book.


Lairen holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Eastern University. She heard about Rachel’s Vineyard through her good friend Kate and immediately wanted to become involved with its wonderful ministry. She hopes to one day obtain her masters in Clinical Counseling, so that she can help those in need. Lairen enjoys spending time with her family and loves to sing, read and paint.


I'm honored to join the Rachel’s Vineyard team! I’m number two of Theresa and Kevin Burke’s five wonderful children. I graduated from West Chester University in 2014, where I studied Psychology. I'm a lover of all things related to music! I play the mandolin, guitar, ukulele, and I absolutely love to sing. I have a puppy named Prudence, a nod to my family's love of the Beatles. I am also an avid baker. I think RV could use a fundraising baking department. I'm thinking “Katie Cakes” or a “Cup-Kates” bakery? All proceeds will, of course, go to Rachel’s Vineyard.
