THE KP BEHIND KP HOLISTIC CHEF
As long as Katie can remember, she has loved food. Her adoration of all things culinary began at a young age when she discovered butter and was caught eating it by the stick. Some of her earliest memories are of cracking eggs with her teeth while helping her mom “cook” at her childhood home in Kansas.
This early onset exploration of food developed into professional training at the Le Cordon Blue College of Culinary Arts in Chicago and onto a decade and a half in the hospitality industry. Her professional culinary career has included working with Martial Noguier and Michael Jordan at Chicago based restaurant One Sixtyblue, private cheffing in homes throughout the Pacific Northwest, as the Culinary Director for Portage Bay Café and Catering and owning and operating KP Holistic chef, a nutritional meal planning and private chef based business.
Inspired by her years in the Pacific Northwest, she began to contemplate the mind body connection to overall health and well-being. This led her to embark on a 200 hour registered yoga teacher training and into the field of nutritional study. As she began to learn more about food and how it affects us, she started to not just make great tasting food, but great tasting food with nutritional purpose. In 2017 she completed a certification as an integrative wellness and life coach to further her understanding of the interconnectedness of mind body health.
In the Fall of 2019 she relocated from Seattle to Western NY and settled into the town of Corning in January of 2020. Her openness, intuition and compassionate nature are some of her greatest assets that allow her to excel at helping others. She continues to learn and grow herself and expand her offerings to help individuals navigate the ebb and flow of life.
