Katie is a Bozeman native who has returned home to work, write, and play. She and her partner Jeff spent a summer traveling Montana from corner to corner sampling every brewery and writing about their experiences on their blog, Tap Routes. Today, she coordinates multiple programs at the conservation nonprofit, Western Sustainability Exchange, creating viable markets for sustainable food. When not working or writing, she gardens, cooks, eats, drinks, hikes, and camps. Her writing centers on food, farming, conservation, and craft beer, and appears most frequently in Rocky Mountain Gardening Magazine. More at katieplumb.com.
