What is in My Bag


bio Profile

My family has told me that as a child my first sentence was “Table, eat food soon.” I’m still not totally sure if this is true, but still, it’s not a huge surprise that I’ve found myself at the crazy cool food and commercial photography studio, Kalman & Pabst as a Production Coordinator. In between that very enlightened statement and my current role, I earned my BFA from The University of Akron, spent 100 days circumnavigating the globe on the MV Explorer with The Semester at Sea program and had tons of cool experiences working for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. as their Corporate Photographer (yes, I’ve been on The Blimp). About three and a half years ago is when I got the amazing opportunity to join the production team at KP. Today, I love working with our clients, solving production problems, and giving our clients our very best, every day. 

Q&A With Katie Ardner

What do you do during your “5 to 9” (After work)?

Yoga, cooking, and watching any documentary that pulls the curtain back on groups of people considered to live on the fringes of society.

What is your quirkiest trait?

My socks are usually inside out because I hate the way the seam feels on my toes.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Binge watching Seinfeld - These pretzels are making me thirsty…. 

What would be your superhero power?

Mind Reading. 

Worst fashion choice?

A belt made out of rubber, bottle caps and a seatbelt buckle (Just let that mental image really sink in…)
