Howdy, I'm Katie
(or KTO as I've gone by since the 90s)
Allow myself to introduce... myself...
| Where it all started... |
My lifelong obsession with reading and writing began before I could even properly hold a pencil - or actually read a book by myself - and I have been regularly writing my whole life. I knew from a very young age that while the world may not always make sense, I could always find meaning in the novels that I regularly devoured and the words that I poured out onto paper.
I first became a Social Media Content Manager in 2010 during my senior year of college at CU Boulder, while pursuing a BA in Film Studies. I had an internship at a little place called *pause for dramatic effect*
Boulder Book Store. My semester spent among the stacks learning everything I could about strategic and sales driven writing and social media as a marketing tool provided me with a new skillset and a deeper sense of purpose for my future.
| Work History |
When it comes to my varied work history, I like to refer to myself as a ‘life cobbler.’ I had my first job at the ripe old age of 12 and haven't stopped working since. Name an industry and I have probably dabbled in it. The many positions I have had include teaching preschool; being a nanny; working in marketing and sales; corporate engagement and sales; working in and managing retail stores; working in fine dining and dive bars alike, and doing web + graphic design. In 2021, I deepened my education and became certified in SEO.
| What can I do for you? |
Due to this rather eclectic history, when I pull up a seat at the table, I bring with me vast knowledge and know-how. I have the unique ability to completely transform my voice to be specific to every client I work with. When I work with you, I combine my love, talent, and passion for writing to deliver a clear and concise message, drive sales and revenue, and gain online momentum. I'm a storyteller at heart, and when you work with me, I expertly craft your story to help you share your big ‘why’ with the world.
| Life beyond the page |
When I'm not working on dominating the world one article, website rewrite, Facebook or Insta post at a time, or working on my very first manuscript, I love to do all the typical things small-mountain town gal’s living in the big city like to do: spend time with my friends and my family, run, snowboard, practice yoga, travel, read, write, and - most importantly -
fulfill my true life's purpose: to become the world’s finest cat lady.
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to work together!
