Katie Sterns

Passionate about food, entrepreneurialism, and community building

 

I am a 5th generation, proud Minnesotan who grew up on the Eagan land homesteaded by my Irish immigrant ancestors. We were lucky to have woods, pond, and fields as our playground and exploratorium – right out our door! Mom steamed up the kitchen every harvest, home-canning delicious stewed tomatoes, pickles, beans, peaches, applesauce, jams … pretty much anything grown in our garden, orchard, or wild on our family land. 

I have a diverse entrepreneurial background focused on small business development, marketing, events, social sciences and design. Community building, talent development advocacy and nonprofit leadership have also been common threads. My personal passions include authentic travel, discovering what makes places and people unique, experiencing amazing foods, and cooking. My life experiences have instilled a desire to find and share the innovative products and stories associated with our local, hand-crafted food ecosystem with others and to help other small businesses collaborate to support one another.  I truly believe that great things happen when we share local love.
