Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about me. I’m Katie. I’m into social media, the outdoors, and not staying in one place too long. I’ve been working in or around the outdoor industry for over 10 years starting in Yellowstone National Park during the summers while attending college at Southern Illinois University…Go Salukis!
After graduating with a degree in Journalism/Advertising I’ve sampled a variety of places to call home including Yellowstone National Park; Death Valley National Park; Billings, MT; Nashville, TN; Oak Hill, WV; Centreville, VA; Austin, TX; and now Cleveland. Throughout that time I tended bar, sold radio advertising, sold mobile billboard advertising, worked as a river guide, and taught other people how to create successful marketing campaigns.
Realizing that Social Media Marketing plays a major role in successful marketing efforts, in 2012 I enrolled in the mass communication graduate program at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.
I chose to continue with my love of the outdoor industry by focusing my research on the conversations surrounding adventure events and the thought processes behind today’s adventure tourism consumer. My specialties include utilizing social media to grow and engage your audience in ways that were never possible before, but crucial to staying relevant in today’s social business environment.
I look forward to hearing from you!
