While she longed for the clothes she saw in fashion magazines, she had little ability to try them on for size ( the closest mall nearly 30 miles away). That was until she decided to take matters into her own hands and asked for a sewing machine for her eighth birthday. Once she began creating her own clothes, Katie realized that it was possible to be fashionable when she applied her creative ingenuity.

Years later and upon graduating from University of Wisconsin with a major in Journalism, Katie moved to the Bay Area to pursue her love for fashion. She worked at Macy’s as an assistant buyer, GAP as a merchandise planner and Mervyn’s, at that time a Target Corporation company, as their national Style Media Spokesperson.

Eventually Katie left corporate retail to pursue a career in the fashion entertainment and landed the host role on Comcast Hometown Network’s (CHN) program Inside City Limits; a Northern California-focused arts and entertainment show. Simultantously, Katie began appearing as a fashion stylist on cable and network lifestyle programs. To date she has appeared on over 400 television segments presenting to viewers style solutions using her brand of creative ingenuity on channels – E! Entertainment, Style Network, Travel Channel, TV Guide Channel, USA Network, HGTV, and FOX Reality TV. Katie has also provided fashion commentary for print and online sources – In Touch Weekly, Real Simple, Pregnancy, CNN.com, Mom.me, RadarOline.com, Yahoo.com, and SheKnows.com and is the author of the newly released pregnancy fashion guide titled, Fashion Dues & Duen’ts; a Stylist’s Guide to Fashionably Embracing Your Baby Bump (Know Act Be Books, 2014).

Katie has served on the Marin County boards and committees of Pixie Park, San Anselmo Arts Commission, San Anselmo Capital Monitoring Commission, and San Rafael Leadership Institute. Katie lives in San Anselmo with her husband, two small children and her trusty-old sewing machine.
