Five years ago, Katie took up a position behind the cheese counter at Goose and quickly ripened into supervisor and head cheesemonger. As she represented Goose at American Cheese Society national conferences and built relationships with cheesemakers and affineurs near and far, Katie selects rare, seasonal, and whey cool cheeses that make the Goose shelves bloom.
Over the years, Katie has assembled some of the most beautiful selections to ever inspire appetites. But what makes Katie the big cheese is her talent for assembling people around those curds and whey. She arranges cornucopia boards for Goose events and her popular cheese classes that inspire oohs and ahhs and, most importantly, a shared experience that makes everything taste better. Quick with a smile, she partners with Goose guests and really listens to their preferences because she cares so much about selecting exactly the right wedge for their moment. She explains the stories behind the wheels with a careful, calm insight that makes the samples she passes across the counter feel like treasures only more valuable when shared.
Katie's affinity for curds is contagious, and her spirit helps guide Goose. We're grateful for her expertise in product and people. Give her a high five and ask about her favorite wheel in the case when you come in soon. Thank you, Katie, and Happy Fifth Goosiversary!
