Katie Nail
Katie Nail is a Jacksonville rookie with a passion for writing, food, outdoors, and occasional exercise. Growing up in Pensacola, Fl, she left home at 18 to travel the world and then attended Flagler College where she focused on English Lit and Creative Writing. She worked in St Augustine as a reporter and freelance writer until she moved to Glasgow, Scotland in 2008. She lived in Scotland with her husband for five years working as a writer and translating her passion for food into a cookery degree. She worked as a professional chef for four years before hanging up her apron and moving to Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. In Luxembourg she and her husband welcomed their son, Q. Katie and her family moved to Jacksonville in November and they are looking forward to discovering a new city. While cooking is something she now does exclusively at home, she enjoys sharing her expertise with other moms. She is determined to raise a good eater (although right now, it’s not going to well). If she is not working as a copywriter for an awesome, local agency, she is probably at the beach, playing with her son, thinking about going back to yoga, talking to someone inspiring, or enjoying a coffee.
