My name is Katherine Martinko and I live in a small town in southwestern Ontario, Canada.
I am a senior writer and editor at TreeHugger, a leading environmental news website with a large, dedicated following. I have worked there since 2013, exploring important current issues such as local food and agriculture, health, zero waste living, sustainable fashion, eco-tourism, parenting, and corporate responsibility.
Formerly, I worked for the Discovery Network’s Parentables website, and my writing has appeared in the Huffington Post (Germany), The Green Parent (UK), PopSugar, and Geez Magazine (Canada).
I am a graduate of the University of Toronto.
Feisty Red Hair is a personal blog that I created in 2012 as an attempt to find balance between motherhood and remaining connected to the outside world. It was an outlet for my creativity and love of writing.
It also turned out to be the best thing I could have done, because it led to the professional writing career that I now enjoy.
