Ole Miss Alumni Profile | March 2015

A creative eye and love of design led alumna Katie Scott (BSHEC 94), owner of KATIE SCOTT Design, to pursue a diverse career that has evolved from interior designer to author, public speaker and jewelry designer.

“I would say the start of my career goes back 10 years,” said Scott. “I started as an interior designer because it always came very natural to me. It’s what I considered a God-given talent and gift that I’m very passionate about.”

A New Orleans native, Scott graduated from Ursuline Academy in 1989 and enrolled at Ole Miss the following fall.

“I always knew I wanted to go to Ole Miss,” Scott said. “My entire family went there including my husband Stanton (BA 92). I had cousins who lived in Greenville, and it all started with Leslie Andrews [Carpenter] (BAEd 83). She was Miss Ole Miss, a member of Tri Delta and a cheerleader. I remember going to Oxford as a little girl and going out on the field with her and just being mesmerized. I knew then that was where I wanted to go to school.”
