Katie Horgan is not one to just sit back and take life easy.
After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting, and working in the corporate world in Boston and Portsmouth for four years, she said she felt it was time to do more with her life. She embarked on the road to becoming a police officer and was hired this year by the North Hampton Police Department.
“I went into business because it was safer and more lucrative, but I could no longer sit in an office,” said Horgan. “I wanted something where I could get up in the morning and really enjoy doing what I did.”
However, once she made the decision to become a police officer, there was a lot of work still to be done to convince people she was serious and capable.
