Katy can be found out and about in Central Indiana pushing a giant stroller full of children. Born and raised in Southern California by two parents who have an appetite for travel and exploration. Katy’s genetic inclination to travel takes her to far off places and her love for all things Indiana took her to wineries, farms, parks and museums, and finally brought about her website, Indy with Kids.
