Katie joined Coastside Couture in the summer of 2015 as our Associate Planner and Social Media Coordinator. She studied Fashion Merchandising and Management at the Fashion Institute in New York until returning back to California to finish a degree in Communication and Journalism at California State University Monterey Bay. Before joining Coastside Couture Katie worked as an Assistant Wedding Coordinator with another local planner. In her off time she loves to be outdoors, whether it’s taking a stroll down Westcliff, doing yoga in her backyard, or camping in Big Sur! Obsessions include golden retriever puppies, green tea, the beach, Rachel Zoe fashion, wine, Italy and travel. Katie keeps us laughing with her very dry sense of humor. She is great with a hammer and level and can often be found doing lots of handyman jobs around the office.
