Katie Shepherd

Katie spent her life up until September 2016 in the greater Los Angeles area, at which point she traded in the palm trees and smog for the food carts and enthusiasm for brunch. A math and science enthusiast, Katie attended Harvey Mudd College, where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, played percussion in the orchestra, and helped create student activities like Crib Races (picture college students in diapers racing in huge cribs on wheels). She’s traveled to Australia during and after college, and hopes to return someday to catch the sunrise at Uluru. She enjoys a good camping trip, rock climbing, dabbling on the guitar, taking photos in an attempt to be artistic, and any opportunity to show you pictures of her cat.
