Katie, originally from Wisconsin, graduated from The Evergreen State College (Olympia, WA) in 2006 with a B.S. in Plant Science & Ecology and an emphasis in Ecological Agriculture.  Over the years, Katie has gained experience in managing both large and small specialty crop production systems, conducting agricultural research, and providing ag education and outreach services. She has worked for both public and private organizations, as well as previously running her own diversified farm. From these experiences, she has found she loves working with and supporting farmers, getting nerdy about soil health, and celebrating successes in sustainable food production. When she’s not at her desk, Katie can be found in her gardens, or cooking and preserving the harvest.  She loves spending time outdoors exploring, camping, and getting out on the water with her family.
