For as long as Katie can remember (and probably even before that), the art of storytelling has entranced her, and the lens of language has been one of her primary ways of understanding the world. For the first two years of her college career, she studied English and Italian at the University of Denver before transferring to Saint Mary’s College of California where she studied English (with a concentration in Film and Dramatic Arts) and Theology & Religious Studies. She submitted to competitive school literary magazines/newspapers, created successful presentations, and probably wrote as many A-worthy papers (some 30 pages long!) as she's eaten meals. Katie is grateful to have earned the title summa cum laude, rendering all those late nights worthwhile, but her immediate future no longer lies in the academic sphere.

For the past 3 years, Katie been a freelance writer for several marketing companies that pride themselves on creating substantial online content and copy for business websites, catering to the client's every want and whim. She's written dozens of pieces covering a vast array of topics, from the Cloud to coffee to construction safety and beyond. She is an excellent researcher and is skilled at seamlessly incorporating SEO keywords into her writing. She has experience in most writing styles, forms, and lengths, as well. Katie knows how to gracefully blend factual details and extensive research with creativity and emotional appeal. Her clients have always been pleased beyond expectation by the quality of her work and her ability to craft it in a short amount of time.
