Katie has been with Wild Tomato since day one. Chances are if you’ve dined at the Fish Creek restaurant you’ve seen her as a server, hostess or doing double duty as Front of House and Beverage Manager. She is an integral part of the Wild Tomato Team.
“I’ve grown so much during my time at the restaurant. It’s always challenged me. I’ve learned so much about relationships through my bonds with coworkers and customers, through creating a positive customer experience. Not to mention, all that I’ve learned about beer. I have developed a passion for food and sustainable practices,” says Katie.
And, although it was her sister’s restaurant that brought her to Door County, it is the beauty that makes her stay. A lover of the outdoors, on her days off you’ll most likely find Katie camping, hanging at the beach with friends or hiking with her dog Juno.
Beyond that she loves to gardening, brewing beer or working with her boyfriend Ashley on their house. “I can’t wait to get back to brewing beer, that is a real passion of mine. That or gardening.”
