Hey, it’s Katie!

In high school, my girlfriends and I shared a notebook. We’d write little messages to each other and pass it around. Being the annoying little shit I was (am?), I scanned the other girls’ notes for grammatical and spelling errors and edited their sentences with red pen before writing my own. Bless them for not disowning me.
My love for writing led me to major in communication at Millikin University in Decatur, IL. I minored in music (my other love) and Spanish, but if you ask me to sing for you, you’ll get the side eye. And if you ask me a question in Spanish, you’re likely to get a blank stare. That was a long time ago, okay?
Today, I’m a wife, mother, sister, and friend. I’m a yoga loving, sugar addicted, craft beer drinking ex-banker now living my best life as a writer. I live in Northern IL with my husband and our two boys, 3 and 1.
