Katie Valenzuela lives her life by two values: kindness and curiosity. She believes every human being should be treated with their souls acknowledged (kindness), and contrary to the popular saying -- while it's thought that curiosity killed the cat, she believes curiosity saves her every single day. Professionally, she works in marketing and is working toward her M.S. in Human Resources with an emphasis in Diversity and Technology. Generally, Katie thinks of herself as a bit much, but in the best way. As Lyndsay Rush (aka @MaryOliversDrunkCousin on Instagram) says, she is "like a bonus french fry in the bottom of the bag," "like a champagne shower," "like triple texting good news."
