Coming from Cincinnati, Ohio, Katie is super excited to join Blitz and live in the Bay Area for the first time. She fell in love with art and creative projects at an early age, taking her first design course in high school. Her father was a landscape architect, often taking her to job sites and teaching her about the industry. She soon discovered her love for architecture and design, going on to study interior design at Ohio State University.
Katie’s passion comes from her innate curiosity in user experience and digging deeper into physical problems through design research. The transformation of spaces that change a person’s happiness is one of the main reasons that Katie loves creating unique spaces curated for the user. She finds that collaboration and design research are key ingredients to a successful project.
When she is not at the office, Katie enjoys sketching, training for marathons, listening to local live bands, and taking photographs of landscapes or interesting scenes on the city streets. New to the area, she is looking forward to exploring California with future trips to Big Sur and Yosemite.
