Kathryn is a native Houstonian whose Texas roots include a cattle ranching family and an affinity for Tex-Mex and Lone Star beer. She moved to New York to pursue a career in PR and marketing after graduating with a marketing degree from the University of Texas at Austin. After moving home to Houston four years later, she still considers herself a New Yorker and her biggest fear is not being in the know with the latest restaurant openings in the city. She loves planning trips around food and will happily create dining itineraries for friends and family traveling to either NYC or Houston. Her current daydreams include planning a cozy vacation to the Cotswolds and guest starring on Master of None.
