Katie & her husband Brad moved to Portland from Chicago four years ago. After nights dreaming about how they would simplify their lives juggling jobs, commutes, and nannies, Brad got a call about an opportunity in Portland. Neither had ever been to the PNW, but one visit and they were sold. Now they spend their nights scheming how to get their family and friends to come west.
Katie has a 10-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son as well as a 20-year-old stepdaughter who has celebrity status with the other two when she is home from college.
She is a freelance advertising producer, blogger, and avid school volunteer constantly adjusting to find balance. When she isn’t shuttling kids to sports or navigating the college system, she can be found at one of Portland’s amazing coffee shops working, reading some YA fiction or out for a run up Mt. Tabor.
