Mrs. Katie Topf
Hello, my name is Katie Topf, and I live in Southampton Twp with my husband, Jonas, and our 4 children: Natalie, Aubrie, Jace, and our newest addition, Sadie. Our family has resided in Southampton for 12 years and we currently have 2 children attending Southampton Twp Schools, as well as one entering the district next year.
Living all of my life in Medford, I graduated from Shawnee High School and studied Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing at Stockton University. Growing up and later working in the Medford area, I learned at a young age to appreciate and embrace small town values. My professional background consists entirely of banking; I previously held an assistant management position at Cornerstone Bank in Medford.
During my time in banking I was a very active Rotarian. As a former Charter Member and Board of Director of the Medford Sunrise Rotary Club, I worked effectively alongside a variety of different kinds of people, personalities, and mindsets. I have a long history of community involvement, some of which includes: organizing donation drives in conjunction with Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey, serving multiple years as a committee member for the annual Dickens Festival, and volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House as well as other various local community projects.
As a Christian, I was a very active member at Lakes Community Church for many years in Medford where I taught children’s Sunday School. My family now attends Easton Bible Church in Hainesport, where I am also an active member serving in children’s ministries. Being a Christian and former Rotarian the motto, “service above self,” is something that really emphasizes my passion for community service.
Currently a stay at home mom, I am focused on raising my 4 children and supporting them in all of their academic and extracurricular needs. As a mother of children in the district, I do not take my role as a school board member lightly. It is why I plan to work hard and do everything I can to see our children thrive. I look forward to the opportunity to serve the Southampton community, and thank you for your trust in electing me as a Southampton Township Board of Education Member.
