After studying TV broadcasting and realizing that she had a different calling, Katie received her culinary training at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Tampa. Her work experience in the food industry includes the kitchens of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida, and an internship as a food stylist at The Home Shopping Network. Katie would also do regular cooking segments on Studio 10, a morning TV talk show on CBS in Tampa Bay. Before leaving the Tampa Bay area, she was the editor for the Food & Drink and Green Community sections of Creative Loafing Tampa, an alternative weekly newspaper and website in Tampa Bay.
Now in Austin, TX, Katie was a chef instructor at the Whole Foods Cooking School for four years. She is currently a private cooking instructor and personal chef, and also freelance food writer and recipe developer. She is known for her experimentation in the kitchen and re-working of recipes to put a personal spin on them. Katie loves sharing her passion for food with others, proving that anyone can be an artist in the kitchen.
