Katie Serabyn was born in a small town in

Southern California. There, she grew up

immersed in nature, spending weekends

in the nearby mountains hiking with her family

or investigating tide pools and beaches for

hidden treasures. Currently, a student at Pratt Institute, her two interests have become intertwined in her thesis work.
