Katie joined JS Atlanta’s PR team in mid-2022, assisting clients such as Dematic, ATD and Chick-fil-A. She is excited to bring years of consumer and B2B experience to JS as she provides support on areas such as media relations, influencer programs and CSR.
Foraying into the world of PR at Porter Novelli, Katie developed a variety of skills, including media relations, monitoring and reporting, social media management, influencer communications and event planning. Her tenure featured a diverse set of clients, such as Panasonic Consumer Electronics, Veritiv, Habitat for Humanity and Food Lion.
Hailing from the Sunshine State, Katie graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida, where she received her BS in public relations with a minor in English and a concentration in business. She knew communications was her calling after managing the media department of the campus’ student-run agency. In this role, Katie directed a team of more than 15 members, communicated directly with clients and oversaw activities including media relations, social content development and paid campaigns. After that experience, she dove headfirst into agency life and never looked back.
Outside of work, Katie is an avid reader currently working to surpass her crowning achievement of finishing 54 books in 2021. On weekends, you can find Katie hosting dinner parties and game nights with her friends, of whom she’s the reigning Scattergories champion. A self-proclaimed “seasonal knitter” – when the weather starts cooling down in the fall, she picks up her needles and dives back into the world of fiber arts.
