Katie Genter began contributing for The Points Guy in November 2015. While working full time on a PhD in computer science, Katie contributed periodic flight reviews (usually in economy).
Since diving into the points and miles world in 2014, Katie and her husband JT have generated over 4.6 million miles/points and visited 26 countries, primarily on award or discounted economy fares.
Katie completed her PhD thesis in June 2017. By this point, she and JT had sold or donated almost all of their possessions. A few days later, they moved out of their apartment and transitioned to become "digital nomads" — traveling the world while working and writing about their experiences. In March 2018 their cat, Grace, joined their journey.
