Katie Grace Kissel
Hailing from Nashville, TN, Katie Grace moved to Columbus five years ago to marry her sweet heart. After the native southerner adjusted to the shock of Midwest winters, she began immersing herself into the city. She has been a personal trainer at SweatBox Fitness for the last 3+ years, and has loved the flexibility that allows her to also stay home with her daughter. She also owns her own business, Moonbeam Nursery Co, and creates handmade luxury nursery items. She is also the founder of Mini Market - Columbus's first craft show featuring baby and kids items, handmade by vendors who are local to Ohio. When she has a free moment from all her ventures, you can find her frequenting her favorite local eats with her little family of three.
