Katherine is an entrepreneur and experienced retail sales and management professional with more than 15 years experience in the fashion industry. In her world, playing dress-up doesn’t stop just because you grow up, nothing beats the treasure hunt for a great antique, and days are spent engaged in creative play with her two young boys and husband in Ventura, CA. A curator of handcrafted finds, Katherine expanded an already-full life to include her mobile truck/online store concept, The Habitat Factory, in 2013. Working directly with designers, makers and artists, The Habitat Factory began a quest to provide quality American and Handmade products via a refurbished 1977 step van named Hattie.. Creating exciting pop-up shops, makers events and workshops that spanned from San Diego to Santa Barbara, Katherine was able to connect with her customers and discover a love for product development and design. Katherine’s work has been seen in 805 Living, The Santa Barbara News Press, The Ventura County Star, Ventana Monthly and has contributed to Flutter Magazine and Create and Cultivate, a conference for women in creative businesses hosted by No Subject and Darling Magazine.
