Bio – Katherine Birkbeck

She is a graduate of Kennesaw State University with a Master’s of Arts in Professional Writing with a focus in business and grant writing.  While she started her career in Atlanta as a photographer and marketing director for an Atlanta Realty Group, she always knew she was an entrepreneur at heart.  Once she photographed her first wedding, the business took off from there and in 2007 it was a full-time gig.  In 2010 Katherine placed 3rd Internationally for the Wedding Photojournalist Association’s quarterly contest for best photographers around the world.  It was then that Katherine and her family moved back to Katherine’s hometown of Clinton.  Shortly after moving, she fell in love with a building on Market Street that she bought and renovated in 2019.  This building quickly became a successful second business for small events such as birthday parties, showers, etc. Throughout her time in Clinton, Katherine became an active Board Member for the Chamber of Commerce, the Education Foundation, the Business Development Committee and the Chair for the City of Clinton’s beautification committee.  This all led to her taking the charge to apply for the State of Tennessee’s Main Street designation and ultimately to her becoming the Executive Director for Historic Downtown Clinton.
