Katie Decker

Katie Decker was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was twenty-five years old and celiac disease one year later.  Her explorations into living a healthy lifestyle with these diagnoses have transformed her life.  She went from working at a fast-paced international architectural firm in Los Angeles to a small company in Portland, Oregon where having a balanced lifestyle is as valuable as good design.  In 2007, Katie attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. It was there that she learned firsthand how what you eat can change your life and that food is more than what you put on your plate. Katie loves being outdoors, taking photographs, making artwork, cooking with fresh ingredients, and talking with strangers.
