    Katie grew up on the Southside of Des Moines and moved to Cumming with her family after 7th grade. She is the youngest of four and the only girl in her family. Her twin brother is two minutes older than her! When her family moved to Cumming, they did so to have more land, which soon became filled with animals. She still has her very first horse too, a mini, named Hurcules. She also has goats that eat pretty much anything and everything! Katie graduated from Martensdale-St. Mary’s. In 2010 she went on to study culinary arts at the Iowa Culinary Institute in Ankeny and graduated with her Culinary Arts degree in 2013. She has previously worked at boarding facilities in Ankeny and West Des Moines. Katie loves to bake and DIY projects. She is an avid Pinterest enthusiast! She has one Dachshund-Shitzu mix, Charlie, whom has more cat traits than dog traits!
