THE BIRDHOUSE CAFE
Katie’s love for food was born from a desire to fuel her body while developing a passion for healthy eating. Her heart is to nourish and heal lives with good nutrition that leaves your body & your tastebuds satisfied.
Katie opened the Birdhouse Cafe in 2017 to create an environment where everyone leaves feeling loved, nourished, and inspired. The Birdhouse offers a range of power foods from acai bowls and salads to healthy takes on traditional, southern fare.
Katie also serves as a spokesperson for the MS UProot Campaign – a campaign with the objective of “building a healthier Mississippi from the ground up.” Katie’s heart to transform lives with the power of food hasn’t gone unnoticed in her local community.
She was awarded Best Chef of the Pine Belt in 2017 and Best Personality & Best New Restaurant in the Pine Belt for 2018. Her restaurant, the Birdhouse Cafe was a finalist for best vegan food in the Pine Belt in 2019. She was also a finalist on MasterChef Season 7 and Food Network Star Season 13. Katie also serves as an ambassador for Lululemon. She is also an ambassador for the World Food Championship.
Since food is fuel for the mind, body, and soul in Katie’s eyes, we can’t go without mentioning that she is a certified personal trainer in TRX, gravity & barre. Katie believes that it is possible for anyone to live life to the fullest if you can inspire people to love & nourish their bodies. Her heart is to make people wake up and love the face they greet in the mirror each morning.
Katie would love the opportunity to share her heart for nourishing people through food at one of the Southern Women’s Shows. She would be honored to have the opportunity to reach new women and hopefully help them learn new ways to nourish themselves & their loved ones.
