As the line of ladies to win the heart of Sean Lowe on The Bachelor Season 17 grows ever-longer, we have yet another contestant ready to find love in Bachelor Mansion. Meet Katie Levans!

Katie used to work a fancy 9-to-5 job that took her all over the world, but she soon figured out that the working world was not for her (she’s admittedly a bit of a free spirit), so she opted to go back to school for a masters in Human Nutrition — while she blogged her nights away about her two loves: food and yoga. In fact, she claims to work out 5-6 times a week! So that’s how you get a body like that...

When she’s not blogging about food, or doing her sun salutation, or taming her outrageously adorable mane of Felicity curls, she works on her charity Plate Share, a non-profit organization that aims to feed the hungry by partnering with restaurants. Sounds kind of brilliant — and exactly the kind of good work likely to warm Sean’s heart.

Can we also talk a minute about cats? Katie has two — Ralphie and Weasel — and besides being two of the cutest felines ever, they clearly have her smitten. Um, weekly Caturday celebrations? We’re kind of smitten with you, Katie — and we’re really hoping Sean feels the same!
