Growing up in Colorado, Katy spent many blustery winter days indoors. It was on those days that one would undoubtedly find her dreaming through Architectural magazines, sketching rough floor plans of the next big family remodel, and bringing to life her first design ideas, one Lego house at a time.
Following her dream she graduated with honors, receiving her BFA in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Colorado. Katy went on to work for industry giant Gensler Architecture. Working with national design teams she traveled the country merchandising model homes for top home builders, and creating industry recognized projects.
Partnering with Carol in 2009, Katy’s innate passion for design shines, her unbounded creative spark, and professional entrepreneurial work ethic make her an impressive asset to the team at Everything Creative. To see the excitement and joy in Katy’s face when she talks about her work, it is no surprise that today we find her living her childhood dream as a successful Interior Designer.
