About the founder
Inspired by her passion to empower American female entrepreneurs, Katrina Markoff, chocolatier and founder of Vosges Haut-Chocolat, created Wild Ophelia to put her mission into action. Through its dynamic partnerships, Wild Ophelia will align itself with foundations and communities alike that share Katrina’s vision to encourage and support American female entrepreneurs.
Katrina moved to Paris just three days following her graduation from Vanderbilt University. After studying culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu, she embarked on a world tour that began with an apprenticeship in Spain under the direction of Ferran Adrià and continued east through Southeast Asia and Australia, where she was inspired to create the purple house of Vosges Haut-Chocolat and her concept, Travel the World through Chocolate™. Wild Ophelia is both a celebration of Katrina’s own, wild adventures, and an opportunity for her to pass along her life-changing experiences to the next generation of female entrepreneurs. Read More
