Hello, Lead On friends my name is Katherynn Weidemann! I am currently a senior pursuing a degree in special education with a minor in reading. I am from Brighton Colorado, and during the academic year I live in South Hall. In my free time I enjoy quilting, reading, and spending time with my friends and family.
