Hi! I'm Katie,

Copywriter + Digital Storyteller. I believe in ethical and inclusive storytelling.

My areas of focus:

Marketing copywriting

Magazines & journalism

Nonprofit storytelling

Copy editing

I help clients tell their brand story across multiple channels and editorial calendars.

Most of my waking hours are spent typing furiously in coffee shops, organizing my bookshelf, heading outdoors, or cramming all my friends into one space.

"Not only has [Katie] earned my complete trust as a talented writer and complete professional, she consistently adds value to my brand with her strategic insight and intuitive ideas about how to write content that engages and connects."
