“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and be greater than our suffering.” – Ben Okri
“I’m a Nutella enthusiast, because that sounds better than addict, and a Jane Austen groupie.”
Katie J is a visual asset to Lirio in more ways than one! (Don’t make it weird.) She prettifies all digital graphics and art for the representation of our brand and manages Lirio’s social media. She is an avid doodler, conceptual illustrator, and captivating graphic artist with an impressive knack for visual aesthetics. She’s also a great team player. Any time an IDEAList needs help bringing their design to life or implementing social strategy, Katie is the girl to make it happen.

Favorite thing as a child: “Disney, crayons, and art!”
Special hobbies/interests: “Living in the creative process is fun. . . but so is spending time with my friends and family. Outside the office I enjoy reading, the outdoors (hiking and paddle boarding are a couple of favorites), practicing hand lettering, and traveling to new places.”
“I really love hats, especially vintage hats. I actually have a vintage hat collection.”
Location: Katie originally comes from Kingsport, Tennessee, but she now lives in Knoxville.
