LILLIE & PINE TEAM

KATY MILLER

FOUNDER | PRODUCT MAKER

After an exciting decade of volunteering in Americorps, Peace Corps, teaching in Japan, and working in Chicago - Katy returned to her native Iowa, where she grew up on Pine Street and Lillie Avenue.

She saw Nathan Miller across a room and asked the person next to her "is he single?" Over the few years, Katy and Nathan married, Lillie & Pine unintentionally became a business and their wild + beautiful daughter, Sadie, was born.

Katy creates and makes by hand all of the recipes and is her own biggest customer. Her greatest accomplishment has been turning this healthy hobby into a family business.

Katy's Fave Product:

Fun Fact:
Katy has been proudly listening to Rod Stewart since high school and totally had a mullet growing up.

As Lillie & Pine has grown from a hobby taking up one shelf in their kitchen to a wholesale operation, Nathan's role as Katy's mentor, IT Support and husband has been central to their success. He has had countless products tested on him and frequently finds himself in spontaneous team meetings at random.

Whether replacing hard drives or advising on everything from what smells great to process improvements, Nathan is all in on this venture. His steadfast and constant belief in the brand keeps Katy pouring products.
