Teaching Professor, Director of Applied Economics Program
Katie Sherron is the Director of the M.S. in Applied Economics program and a Teaching Professor of Economics at Florida State University. She has taught courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels including Principles of Micro and Macroeconomics, Health Economics, Health Policy Statistics, and Applied Microeconomics. One of her favorite rolls is keeping in touch with alumni and setting up Career Day in the fall and spring for the master’s students. The most rewarding part of her job is facilitating growth in her students and watching them mature and become professionals.
Dr. Sherron grew up in Michigan and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Economics from Hope College in 2003. She earned her Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Florida in 2009. But don’t hold her former status as a Gator against her; Dr. Sherron considers herself a full Seminole and has been teaching at FSU since 2008.
Dr. Sherron also enjoys running, learning, and playing outdoors with her husband and their two young children. She’s trying to get the hang of travel.
