Originally from South Dakota, Katie graduated with a degree in food science from the University of Minnesota in 2015 and since then has started her career in the food industry. As of January 2016 she is now working as a Co-Editor for the Kuli Kuli Blog! Katie is interested in anything that has to do with food: where it comes from, how it’s made, and how its production affects the planet. She believes in a hybrid between the conventional food industry and more organic industry of recent years, and feels strongly on the need to bridge the gap between science and the public through writing. Some of Katie's favorite things include: hiking, Starbucks, and cats.
