About Katie

I’m a 20-something year old working in New York City at one of “the best places to work.” I currently reside in New Jersey with my long term boyfriend and 2 cats, Cosmo and Pepper.

Growing up and going through college my dream was to become the next Diane Sawyer. I graduated Hofstra University with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science. My boyfriend’s job took him to Silicon Valley so after college I moved out to join him. Student loans ($XXX,XXX) made me change my mind on what kind of career I wanted (at least for the time being) and with luck, thanks to my boyfriend, I got into the tech industry as a temporary worker. Eventually I was hired full time. Luckily for us, the company we both work at has locations around the world so after a while we were able to transfer to the NYC office closer to family and college friends.

A Sprinkle of Life is designed to be a place where I can control my destiny and find a little something that makes me happy instead of relying on others to help make that happen. I hope you’ll follow along on my journey, there’s sure to be a lot of exciting times ahead.

Topics I plan to tackle:
Weddings, travel, working in tech as a woman, being a redhead, student loans, style, trends, crafting, and random life ramblings.

A few fun facts before you go:

  • I’m obsessed with the Royal family of Britain.
    • Kate Middleton is my idol
  • Ok, ok, I’m basically obsessed with anything British (tv shows, actors, London, books, etc)
  • Harry Potter will always hold a special place in my heart
  • I love cats! I’m not a crazy cat lady yet, but I don’t know if I would be offended by the title
  • Making candles is one of my hobbies
