Hi! I’m Katie.

I design better ways to serve people. Professionally, this means figuring out how to create the best experiences for people — and how words can help do that — at Facebook, where I’ll start full-time as a content strategist this summer.

In the meantime, I’m looking for answers to similar questions at the Missouri School of Journalism, where I’m a master’s candidate in strategic communication. This semester, I’m completing my thesis on the relationship between trust in media institutions and media usage. I’m also using design thinking in a consulting project for Missouri Business Alert, a news media startup that’s seeking innovative ways to become financially sustainable.

Three other things you should know about me:

  1. I’m a strong believer in the power of community-centered service and active citizenship.
  2. I’m always down to talk nerdy about the future of news media — both the business and the product.
  3. I’m a native Atlantan who will forever be loyal to Coke.

For more information about projects I’ve worked on, take a look around my website. Have any questions or comments? I’d love to chat.
