About Katie

Originally from Georgia, Katie graduated from Ole Miss in 2008 before moving to Nashville, Tennessee. As an active member of the community, she’s previously worked in fundraising, international development, and helped start one of the first creative co-working spaces in the country, WELD, before establishing her own marketing and design firm. Today, through The Lentile Group, Katie draws upon her experience launching campaigns for over 50 companies, including Google, Kenneth Cole, and Vanderbilt University, to strategically construct brands that don’t just look beautiful, but are embedded with proven tactics to scale as successful, sustainable businesses.


Some of Katie’s earliest childhood memories involved visiting construction sites across the Southeast with her father, a civil engineer, and imagining all of the ways to make buildings more functional and creative. She credits her dad for developing a keen business sense at a young age, learning first hand that success is only truly measured when integrity sets the standard for efficiency and quality design.


Having been to over 30 countries, Katie possesses a deep appreciation for the world’s diversity and considers the shared human experience one of the driving forces behind all she does. She channels her interests in architecture and exploration into her creative passion project, A Cozy Casa, where she finds joy in hosting guests and curating an intentional space in which to feel at ease. In demonstrating her interior design skills, she’s collaborated with relevant brands such as The Citizenry, Airbnb, and The Sill, and loves discovering independent makers who are devoted to the art they create.
