Katie Moreno

Katie was born and raised in Milton, Wis. She attended UW-Eau Claire before studying abroad in Normandy, France, and later teaching English as a foreign language in Mexico City. Katie and her husband Alex currently live in Middleton with their two boys Felix (2013) and Gabe (2015). Parenting threw Katie its first curveball when her son Felix was diagnosed with food allergies at 11-months-old. She advocates for inclusivity within the restaurant industry on behalf of individuals impacted by food allergies, among other dietary restrictions. Katie and her family have spent a lot more time outdoors camping since the pandemic started, and they are looking forward to their new adventure this winter as members of Blackhawk Ski Club.
