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.
SARA, Technical/Graphical Assistant
Sara is a mama to three precious gifts and wife to a man who lovingly calls her “his nutter.” She started pushing her family into real food a few months after she started blogging. They will forever be on the road to real food and natural health.
Balancing art and logic in her daily life and work, God’s balance of creation and healing is quite clear to her. She loves creating, experimenting, and learning. Whether it be food, health or crafting. She is navigating her family through healthy frugality – trying to THRIVE, not merely survive this life. She shares this journey at Your Thriving Family.
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 toddler son. In her free time she loves reading, spending time outside and playing golf.
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 Florida natives born and raised and are now living in Marietta, Georgia.
HELEN, Administrative Assistant
In 2013 Helen stepped down from the corporate world to become a stay-at-home-mom to her two young children. Her six years of administrative assistant skills were put on the back burner for days of playing, learning, and cooking. Living on one income seemed daunting but her family chose to trust that God would provide and He did with per position at Kitchen Stewardship. Helen assists with eBook customer service and keeping Katie’s email box in line.
When Helen isn’t working, she enjoys reading books and blogs and is an avid knitter. Returning to a more natural way of living has become a true passion and she can be found making yogurt, babywearing, or hanging cloth diapers out to dry. Helen and her family currently live in Wisconsin but dream of a more temperate climate.
JACQUELYN, Research and Site Optimization
Jacquelyn Byers fell in love with cooking from scratch when she visited southern France back in high school. When she was introduced to the Weston Price Foundation in college, she never looked back. Since then she has continued to research and strives to make healthy choices for her the environment as well as her own body, mind and soul. As a fairly new wife and mother, these choices have taken on an entirely fresh significance.
Jacquelyn enjoys researching health topics and post editing for Kitchen Stewardship. She recently started blogging at LittleOwlCrunchyMomma where she shares real food recipes, healthy living tips and talks about the ups and downs of motherhood. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+. Stop on by and say hello. Jacquelyn loves connecting with other like-minded friends via the internet world!
MARY, Team Assistant
Mary is a Michigan State University alumnus, former math teacher, currently a substitute teacher K-12 and part-time golf pro-shop employee. She became a mom in 1980 with the birth of Katie (yes, the Kitchen Stewardship Katie). She assists Katie with archiving posts, trying to catch/fix any typos in posts, and other small-sized ‘chores’. Reading and golf are her main hobbies beyond being a grandmother.
…to my kids, Katie interjects. I’m so proud that this lovely lady is my mother, and that she has put up with my late-night writing ways ever since high school. She’s truly wonderful, and I waxed poetic about her HERE along with a delicious baked apple chip recipe.
TIFFANY, Special Projects
Tiffany began eating real food when she realized the boxes of food in her kitchen contained more ingredients she couldn’t pronounce than ones she could. She threw them out, started making yogurt and hasn’t turned back since. Putting her type-A personality to good use, Tiffany works behind the scenes, handling the technical and graphic elements at Kitchen Stewardship.
When she’s not creating fun buttons and hacking code, Tiffany is can be found homeschooling her two children, immersed in a good book or experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen. She and her family make their home in California, hiking the mountains, wearing flip flops at the beach and blogging about her frugal real food adventures at Don’t Waste the Crumbs.
