Katie grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her mom and identical twin. For the first seven years of her life, Katie’s mother drove two hours each direction to earn a degree in education. That dedication, determination and overall work ethic inspired Katie to start her own company, ingraining in her the understanding of what it means to be a woman founder. She carries that knowledge with her to every meeting.
Katie currently lives in Chicago and enjoys spending time traveling and hanging out with her samoyed named Ymka.
