Hello and welcome to Kitchen Stewardship! I’m so pleased to introduce you the team here at KS, all dedicated to making sure you receive great family recipes for your Pinterest boards, real food encouragement and tips to get you out of the kitchen faster and with more in your pocket, and connections with natural companies you can be proud to support.
KATIE, Editor and Owner
I’m the foundress and writer at the site, and reluctant “boss” of the team. You can read more about my little family and the mission of KS here, so I’ll turn things over to the rest of the people who keep me sane and help provide the time I need to research and write posts and interact with the wonderful community we’ve built here.
HELEN, Site Editor
As site editor Helen works diligently to ensure all guest and contributor posts flow seamlessly into the vision of Kitchen Stewardship. She also makes sure Katie doesn’t become too long-winded in her posts. 😉 Reading and editing have always been passions of Helen’s so she is thrilled to be able to help out in this way. She also makes sure the KS email inbox stays under control and handles all eBook customer service issues. She also writes on occasion at KS and is editor at Whole Intentions.
When Helen isn’t working, she enjoys reading books and blogs and is an avid knitter. Food allergies were the kickstart to more cooking from scratch and healthful living. Katie’s baby steps are the perfect intro to making life adjustments. Helen, her husband and their two small children live in Wisconsin.

RACHEL, Social Media Manager
Rachel has been a stay at home mom for over eight years after having worked for several years in the financial services industry. Now that her kids are older, she wanted to jump back into the workforce while still being home when her kids came home from school. Virtual work seemed to be a perfect fit and working here at Kitchen Stewardship seemed to be an even more perfect fit! Rachel’s family is slowly but surely taking baby steps toward healthier eating.
Rachel handles all aspects of social media for Kitchen Stewardship, from Pinterest to Facebook and everything in between. But don’t worry, you’ll still hear from Katie on those outlets as well. Rachel and her family are born and raised Florida natives now living in Marietta, Georgia.
KATY, Ad Manager
Katy and her family began their real food journey in 2009 when they were challenged by some friends to think about how their food choices effect others in the world. That challenge led them to the natural, eco-friendly life they strive to live today. Katy handles advertising and sponsorships for Kitchen Stewardship, including giveaways.
Katy grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan and spent several years in marketing before her son was born in 2012. She now lives in Lafayette, Indiana with her youth minister husband and their two children. In her free time she loves reading, cooking, spending time outside and playing golf.
SARAH, Graphic Assistant
Sarah is a long-time KS reader and natural living enthusiast. A history teacher by trade, she also dabbles in design, which is what she does as part of the Kitchen Stewardship team. Sarah began pursuing a more natural lifestyle while trying to resolve some health issues and improve the overall health and nutrition of her family.
She is the mom of three little people that take up much of her time, but when free time does arise, Sarah loves to be outside running, biking, camping or gardening. She also enjoys reading and learning, whether it be history, faith or food, she often is in the middle of four or five books at the same time. Sarah and her husband, Justin, live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with their three kids.
Bethany Wright, Virtual Assistant
Bethany lives in Ohio with her wonderful husband, delightful 7-year-old daughter, and adorable 4-year-old son. When she’s not busy making a disaster in the kitchen, she enjoys taking all-day cycling excursions with her family and reading books. She comes from a long line of cooks, including ancestors who were chefs to German nobility.
Despite her chops in the kitchen, she is completely unskilled at vegetable gardening. (Her consolation is knowing that in a zombie apocalypse, her role would be the town baker and not farmer.) A long-time KS reader, Bethany is thankful for Kitchen Stewardship’s baby-steps and Monday Missions that have completely transformed her family’s life.

I’ve got a great bunch of contributors here at Kitchen Stewardship. They bring experience and expertise in areas that I might not have to round out the information you are looking for. I hope you’ll give them a warm welcome and add to the discussion on their posts.
