Katie S

As a Fort Worth native, she knew she never wanted to stray far from home. After a short time at Kansas University, Katie came home to attend UTA. She is a very recently single mom to four children under four. Her twins, Harper and Scarlett, were born in 2016 after a struggle with infertility, and then she had two miracle boys, Miles (2018) and Max (2020). When she is not driving children to activities, Katie works as a real estate agent. In her spare time, which is now very hard to come by, she enjoys pilates, taking her children to Melt, or relaxing with a glass of wine and a home-cooked meal.

Meal Delivery Simplified

I realized it was becoming increasingly difficult to think of dinner ideas. My children are all involved in different activities, so fast food was becoming too regular. I wanted something that I could cook, but it did not take a lot of time and tasted yummy, too.
