Katie started her career with a leap of faith across the country to New York City, to pursue a career in journalism. While finding success at a glamorous fashion and beauty website, she found the Sex and the City-inspired lifestyle she once believed would make her happy didn’t quite fit. Instead, her soul lit up during yoga and meditation classes, sending her down an entirely different path of life-long learning that would bring her around the world to obtain her advanced teaching certification and to graduate school to obtain a Masters of Arts degree in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University. She considers herself a “website midwife,” helping others in various industries bring their dream websites to life. She also continues to freelance; her writing has been published on ELLE.com, InStyle.com, and Teachable, while her wellness tips have appeared in POPSUGAR Fitness. She considers mindfulness an essential part of her work (and play!), and is passionate about supporting individuals in stepping into their fullest and highest expression.
