Katie Koehler grew up in Arlington, Texas with an older brother, twin sister and two loving parents. Katie went to college at The University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a Masters in Public Accounting. Following college, Katie moved to Denver to work with Ernst & Young, but left after a year, seeking a job that would utilize her business mind and people heart. Katie was contacted by Mark and Madison about Purple Door Coffee and immediately resonated with the purpose, dreams and heart of the shop.

Katie loves the outdoors, ice cream and conversations that are shared across the couches in her living room. She hates small talk and still secretly aspires to change the world with her words and rhymes as a female rapper.
