Katie Blineau is the Boss Lady behind Unearthed Rentals, the wedding-project-turned-business-venture she and her husband, Jovan, originally dreamt up in 2011 that has serviced thousands of events over the years. A future serial entrepreneur, she has a true passion to help those around her grow and thrive as great leaders, and she just happens to love designing beautiful spaces.
Katie, and more specifically Unearthed, has been featured in national publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings and Style Me Pretty, and was more recently recognized in the Miami Herald for being one of the few dog-friendly workplaces in South Florida. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to work with brands like Red Bull, Sports Illustrated, and Google over the years and in 2016 Unearthed won the South Florida Business Excellence Award for Best Company Culture.
Like most millennials, Katie has a bachelor’s degree that technically has nothing to do with what she is doing today (hers specifically is in Sociology from SUNY College at Buffalo), except that it was part of the journey that lead her here, for which she is grateful. She is also an April 2018 graduate of the 10,000 Small Businesses Program from Goldman Sachs.
Now that she has 8 years experience of owning and running a company, Katie believes work-life balance doesn’t actually exist, and is still navigating through the crazy life of being a mom of two boys (Sawyer, 4 + Charlie, 1), wife, and business owner, while making an attempt at remembering that thing called self-care. She truly believes that surrounding herself with an amazing support system and a team who possess skills where she lacks is what gets her through each day.
