Katie is so grateful to be working at HowDoesShe! She is the mother of 5 kids, loves going to the theater and eating Mexican food. When she’s not working for How Does She, she’s usually working with her husband helping him run his own video business or chasing their kids around to the usual: cub scouts, piano lessons, play practice, chess club, and keeping the 3 year old from playing in the street (full time job right there!). Someday she hopes to run a non-profit group for those struggling in Africa (a place dear to her heart), visit the blue waters of Tahiti, run a 1/2 marathon, and donate loads of money to those in need. Katie is the secretary at HowDoesShe. She answers emails – helping readers with any needs, keeps the blog posts current with SEO, writes the occasional round up post, and is our twitter gal. She’s so glad to be here with all these lovely ladies!

Vanessa is a Kansas girl, wife to a farmboy-turned-engineer husband, and mother to two sweet blessings. She loves old things, country music, cookie dough ice cream, and French bulldogs—especially her own, Hazel. She thinks being a mom is by far the best job she’s ever had, and not just because it allows her to drink extra caffeine and avoid pants with any kind of buttons. When she’s not doing puzzles, pushing swings, or refereeing small children, she can be found watching Fixer Upper reruns and trying to channel her inner Joanna Gaines. You can read more over at Vanessa’s blog, Sunflower State of Mind.
