Our next victim of the office biography is Katy. Here at Hatch, we like to put a face to our company and let you all know who you are talking too. Katy is our newest employee and is utterly and completely excited to have joined the Hatch River Expeditions team. Working with customers from around the world to provide them with the ultimate whitewater vacation is a dream come true for her. She is learning quickly that we seriously have the BEST clients.
Katy grew up in Los Gatos, CA and spent most of her life there. She ventured to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona where she graduated with a degree in nutritional sciences and a minor in chemistry. Totally applies to rafting, right? She has spent the past few years exploring and getting to love everything about Arizona. This self-proclaimed California girl may be an Arizona girl convert.
The diversity and vastness of this state have truly had an impact on this city girl. She met her fiancé, Jared, when he was her guide on a fly fishing trip on the Colorado River at Lees Ferry a few years back. You could say it was “love at first cast”…or not. They are in the midst of planning a rustic Montana wedding. Her favorite pastimes include camping, hunting (well going along, not necessarily the hunting), fly fishing – and now whitewater rafting.
Among her most prized possessions, Katy includes her German Shorthair Pointer: Hank and her Corgi: Moose. Arizona’s high country has provided her with the opportunity to trek, explore and develop as an outdoor enthusiast. Dogs and hubby in tow, Katy is always out for an adventure and truly enjoys planning adventures for others. Anything to help people experience the Grand Canyon state as it is mean to be explored. Give her a call and she will no doubt help book you on the vacation of a lifetime.
