Katy Wildes graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Art History. She quickly ditched this passion in order to pursue a career as a copywriter and multimedia specialist for both the guide2athens and Bulldawg Illustrated brands. When she’s not writing about fellow Dawgs, you can find her in the ATL concocting new recipes and forcing her husband Paul and two children to try them. A recent quote from Paul, “Katy, green beans aren’t supposed to go in spaghetti.” I guess it’s safe to assume she should stick to her day job.


Caroline Kinney is a Washington & Lee “General” by diploma and a Georgia Bulldawg by marriage. While living and working for commercial division with CB Richard Ellis in downtown Charleston, she ventured to a Georgia football game and was snapped in a photograph that later found its way to the latest issue of Bulldawg Illustrated. Her phone buzzed with texts from Atlanta friends who had seen her picture…one saying “you don’t even live in Athens yet, and you’re already in the Bulldawg Illustrated!!” Caroline and her husband Matthew moved from Charleston to Athens after he accepted an offer in town and she quickly got plugged in with Vance and Cheri. In her spare time, Caroline can be found enjoying everything outdoors…tennis, golf, fly fishing, mountain biking, and plein air painting. Caroline and Matthew have a beautiful daughter, little Caroline, and son, John, who keep a big smile on their faces all the time.
