Bio: Katie grew up as a picky eater. Although her taste buds eventually became more curious, much of her diet was characterized by meals which were on-the-go, frozen, and nutrient-deficient. It wasn’t long before she encountered severe digestive distress. Through many doctor appointments, self-study, and experimentation, she eventually found resonance in the concept that food is medicine. This led her to study Ayurveda, holistic nutrition, and culinary skills. This prompted a gradual career shift from teaching outdoor education, math, and science to holistic culinary education. She loves using creativity with new and old recipes, meal planning, grocery store and farmers market shopping, and inspiring others to make healthy food and lifestyle choices.
When she is not in the kitchen, Katie is often in the sunshine hiking, biking, skiing, gardening, exploring somewhere new, reading, practicing yoga, or spending time with family and friends.
