Katherine (Kat) was born in the California wine-growing region of Napa Valley, where she found an early appreciation for nature and the outdoors in a deeply-rooted agricultural community. She moved to Honolulu in 2013 and spent seven years living, working and traveling throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
Katherine is currently based back in her home state of California but still reconnects with Hawaii as often as she can. Her writing focuses on sustainable tourism, wildlife conservation, travel and food. Some of her best writing memories include interviewing a traditional Irezumi Japanese tattoo artist (while he was in the middle of giving a tattoo), getting an impromptu meditation lesson from a Buddhist minister at Myohoji Temple in Honolulu, exploring sustainable tourism in Palau and completing an in-depth guide to Na Pali Coast State Park on Kauai.
