Meet Katie

She creates her own confetti is the motto around here. The Pink Chickadee is a platform for those who love colorful preppy fashion, traveling colorfully, making home a happy place, life in Washington, DC, and much more. Whether you LOVE to travel, need some Washington, DC area suggestions (whether local or visiting), love to admire and shop ALLL things colorful preppy fashion/home decor, or all of the above, there is something for YOU. Our author Katie loves the quote: “be yourself, as everyone else is already taken”. On this sweet little corner of the internet, empowering others the way others empowered us to be the people that we are meant to be reigns true.

Whoever said “be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons” clearly knew her life motto. Ever since she was a little girl, Katie loved the color pink, big puffy dresses, and the highest and sparkliest heels I could find. At the age of five, Katie was destined to leave a lasting mark in this world with a touch of glitter and a whole lot of pink. Fast-forward fifteen years, and Katie had recently graduated from Meredith College, all-women’s institution in Raleigh, North Carolina, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and minors in Statistics, Website Development, and Data Science with Honors who still loves all-things pretty and pink. As a proud Washington, DC area-based woman in STEM who shops, hosts, and travels every chance she can get, Katie loves to share all things confetti, whether it be her style, adventures, life experiences, or her love for her dogs Rosie and Ginger. Alongside being a blogger, Katie is striving to share her passions for being a woman in STEM as she currently works full-time in a healthcare-based consulting role and advocates to empower the next generation of women in STEM via being on the Marketing Committee for STEM For Her. Katie strives to share all things in her life on this platform, plus a sprinkle of confetti (or two!).

The magic of Katie’s confetti has reached many over the first 3 years of The Pink Chickadee! With Katie’s content being featured on the likes of Starbucks, Scout Bags, Visit Lewes, Mark & Graham, All She Wrote Notes, Stay Arlington, and Influenster on social media, the confetti has truly spread beyond her sweet corner of the internet. Katie has also been spotlighted by The DC Blogger Union, the Meredith Magazine (her alma mater Meredith College’s magazine), and Shapermint. Brands that Katie has worked with include: Panera Bread, OPI, Shapermint, Reserve Pass, Good Molecules, Shop Navy Bleu, The Inspiration Co., Vita Cup, Exlura, Pat McGrath Labs, Vivaia, Ouges, Cassie’s Designs, Peet’s Coffee, Glitter & Daisies, Advil, Larace, Amika, Eos, and Mapiful. Through it all, a passion for fashion, pink, and a WHOLE LOT of confetti has gone a long way for Katie. Being herself has allowed her to find her own sparkly place in this big world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where did The Pink Chickadee come from?

Until she was eight years old, Katie lived in Pennington, New Jersey where she would always see and hear Black Capped Chickadee’s outside of my window. The sound and beauty of the Black Capped Chickadee only enhanced her obsession for the bird, and, as previously mentioned, she has always had an obsession with the color pink. As someone who is consistently the brightest of the bunch, Katie found The Pink Chickadee to be perfectly fitting!
