Hi! I'm Kate Hutcheson.
I'm a mom of two kids (plus one big, lazy, blind greyhound). I'm a knitter and crafter (say hi to me on Ravelry, if you're a knitter or crocheter). I love 70s glam rock, bluegrass, The Best Show with Tom Scharpling, and traveling anywhere and everywhere with my husband.
Why "The Efficient/Creative"?
Do you know those sayings that start with, "There are two types of people in this world...?" Those have always brought out my rebellious streak. I'm one of those multipassionate people who can't stand to be put in a box! For me, being creative and methodical are NOT mutually exclusive.
I started The Efficient/Creative to empower creative women business owners. In my role, I can be a sounding board, an extra hand, and an enthusiastic cheerleader. I take my clients' success as seriously as my own (while having some fun in the process).
The nitty-gritty, background-y bits:
I've held a lot of roles in a lot of different industries. That's one reason why my work now is such a great fit. I find joy in a lot of different types of jobs and I love to learn new things. I received a certificate in Web Design with a concentration in Design Business in 2014, and earned a B.A. in English prior to that. I've been a freelance family photographer, a professional project manager, a content editor, a corporate trainer, a customer service representative, and a barista, to name just a few.
The connecting thread between all of those different jobs, the element that drives me is connecting with people and bringing ease and joy to their lives.
