Her Story


To make every woman feel seen & heard for exactly who she is.


To create a safe environment where every woman can share their secrets & feel supported by her community.


To inspire women to step into their power & become leaders in their own community.


Picture this: You’re on the floor in your house, sitting, perched up against a kitchen cabinet. You’re probably crying. You have everything that everyone tells you to have. A perfect partner, a 9-5 job that is financially supporting, a home you can call your own… but somehow you’re here… on the floor. Wondering how in the world you got here & wanting to escape it all.

Maybe you were here at some point in your life, maybe you’re here right now, or maybe your just about to get to this point.

This was me 12 years ago. It was in that moment I realized I was not living my passions and was shying away from my power. That’s when I decided to make the jump, the jump into we call this thing “entrepreneurship”.

From there I leapt into wedding coordinating, event production, custom furniture making, florals and catering. I even took my catering business on the water for a while, working on private Yachts. As soon as I took the jump, life opened up, gifting me with the skills, experience, and motivation I needed to create the life of my dreams!

Here’s where Hatched Collective comes in… I realized there were other women sitting on the floor wondering why they didn’t feel fulfilled. I decided to leap again, opening Hatched Collective and launching Coffee + Conversations.

Hatched Collective is a community of women who come together to help bring each other’s dreams to life. What these women have in common is an inner drive to pursue what it is that makes them happy. They have big ideas and value working in a collaborative space with other entrepreneurs. The power of women who come together to support each other equals an unstoppable power house.

Coffee + Conversations is the gathering of this community, where we create a safe space for female entrepreneurs to share their story, support one another, and feel inspired by other women’s stories.

No matter what stage of your business you are at ( been in business for 5, 10, 20 years, just starting out, or just hatched an idea) I am here to support you.


Dear Katie

Take a look at the growing collection of inspiration and letters from my community!


“Katie –

Where do I start? I owe mt start to you! You gave me the confidence and ability to start Kelly PR and the guts to say bye to a job I had wanted to leave for a very long time! You are magic.

That person that brings life to the party and makes it all happen! I always joke with Ryan that I am a “do-er!” YOU are a do-er. You make things happen and put words into action.

You push through hard times and show your vulnerability which simultaneously shows your strength!
You are an inspiration!



– Kelly Brown, Kelly PR

“Dear Katie, 

You are such a bright light and an inspiration to me and the entire Hatched community. You exude confidence and ownership in a way that is that is truly affective. You’ve built such an incredible community of like-minded women whom, individually, you’ve really helped to shine, and collectively you’ve brought together in the most genuine, meaningful way so that we always feel welcomed, encouraged and supported by you, and each other. Thank you for all that you do, and I am honored to be a part of this beautiful sisterhood you’ve created.
