Hi. I'm Katie. I'm a student in the inaugural cohort of the Collaborative Design MFA at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
I'm originally a Midwesterner: raised in Quincy, Illinois, but lived in Chicago for six years prior to moving to Portland. I studied Interior Design at The Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago. After graduating, I worked for a couple years in a variety of jobs; including a junior designer at a commercial architecture firm, and as a personal assistant to an entrepreneur. I moved to Portland last year to work at Sisters Of The Road as a Jesuit Volunteer.
I enjoy cold-brew iced coffee, mountains, fractals, Venn diagrams, trips to Seattle, and cooking dinner for other people.
