Born and raised in Los Angeles, Katie grew up in the entertainment industry and was always amazed by the magic that went on behind the camera. She fell in love with makeup at a very early age, watching her mother get ready for events that she and her father were going to. When her mom bought her a MAC eyeshadow at Bergdorf Goodman when she was 10 years old, she was hooked. To further her knowledge and obsession, she began collecting books by Kevyn Aucoin and Bobbi Brown and constantly practiced the techniques. Katie left Los Angeles to go to the University of Miami where she studied Public Relations and Gender Studies but always maintained her passion for fashion and beauty.


After graduating, Katie began working for Rachel Zoe and her daily email newsletter, The Zoe Report. She eventually became the Beauty Editor & built strong relationships with beauty brands while expanding her knowledge further by testing out all of the newest skincare, cosmetic, and hair products in order to curate the best selection to feature on After leaving, Katie decided to take her passion and turn it into a career. She has loved working behind the scenes AND constantly remembers the feeling she used to get growing up on sets as a child. She looks forward to being constantly inspired by her work and the people she meets as her career continues to grow and flourish.
