I've know Katie Haskins, owner of Capsule women's boutique in Augusta, Georgia, for almost seven years now. One of the first things I noticed about Katie is that she always leaves me feeling better than I started—she calls me "love" or "goose", she has one of the best smiles on the planet, and she exhibits a personal generosity that seems limitless—which might be why so many women in Augusta are loyal customers. Katie and Capsule are about helping women of all ages look and feel their best—her clients range from "teen to queen", two often-overlooked age groups when it comes to quality clothing—which is why we are excited to feature her as one of our inaugural #womenwhogofarther.
She's not only super-talented, she also hysterically funny. So I was excited that she was game for answering our rapid-fire questions. Her video shows off the playful side of Katie that I adore so much. I hope you enjoy getting to know her more.
