Katlyn was the first person I sat beside when I started at BP. I was nervous, but she made me feel at ease. We would chat about the podcasts she was listening to and share jokes about wishing it was Friday next to the coffee machine. Katlyn had a gentle disposition and a warm smile. She will be terribly missed by me and so many others. I'm so sorry.
