Katie grew up surrounded by a family of strong writers and communication professionals. She attended the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., where she earned a bachelor’s degree in French. After college, where she had the good fortune of studying abroad in France, she moved to Colorado. There, she earned a master’s degree in journalism and mass communications from the University of Colorado in Boulder, then landed a job as a television reporter for ABC in Yakima, Wash.
After a couple of years, Katie shifted to print journalism, accepting a position back in Colorado as managing editor of the bridal industry’s 30+-year-old, award-winning business magazine, VOWS: Magazine. Five years into that role and newly married, she realized her entrepreneurial dreams and launched her own writing and communications business. Today, she still writes for VOWS—her client now for 20 years.
Katie has worked for hundreds of brands, businesses and individuals, doing everything from ghostwriting books to delivering 1,000+ press releases, blogging, crafting case studies, magazine writing, editing for publishers, proofreading and building communication plans. For several years, while managing her own business, Katie also launched and ran a nonprofit independent business alliance in her county—an initiative that grew to 300+ organizations in three short years, increasing economic vitality for the county and empowering the alliance members with innovative marketing and business development strategies. She also served as a contract marketing director for a major health organization serving over 12,000 patients. She loves not just working for businesses but on businesses, and has advised a number of clients as they’ve started or grown their companies over the years.
Outside the office, Katie spends her free time with her husband and two children, enjoying the extraordinary beauty of the high desert and Cascade Mountains. Engaging with nature—skiing, hiking and paddle boarding with the friends and family she loves—revives her regularly and sustains focus on the good in life and all that matters most.
