About Katherine:

Katherine grew up in Richardson & after graduation from Texas Tech moved back to Richardson. I am a 3rd generation college sports junkie who eagerly anticipates the kickoff of Football Season and the hype of March Madness. Growing up in a family that loves to watch their school move the ball down the field or court while yelling at the TV or in the stands, floods my mind with so many wonderful memories! For me, four years of college marching band at Texas Tech only intensified my passion for sports. My parents are both entrepreneurs at heart and it did not take long for me to realize that I am as well. After trying my hand in the world of brick and mortar retail, I quickly realized that it was time for me to combine my passion for college sports and entrepreneurial DNA by launching my own brand.

When Katherine is not working she enjoys spending time with her family, friends, traveling, volunteering at her church &  participating in her local Junior League. And watching endless amounts of college football in the fall!

      The Tailgate Team:

      "It takes a village & I am thankful for this village." Katherine 

      How It Got Started: 

      Tailgating Central got started by a Texas Tech Grad & Goin' Band From Raiderland Alumni Katherine. After wearing a band uniform for 4 years, she had no cute game day apparel & after shopping around realized there were none to be found. So she put her retail & entrepreneurial skills together & started Tailgating Central. She wanted it  be unique in that the focus is ladies that are passionate about their University and want to wear something that reflects that passion but that also fits properly. 


      Thanks for being a part of this fabulous part of college life.
