As a branding consultant, she uses empathy and listening to help brands create their voices, craft their stories and authentically bring them to life. Katie believes in saying "yes, and," that everything is better with coffee and that Pluto has always been a planet. She is the sole proprietor of kg creative, llc, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she consults and develops strategic content for Fortune 500s and smalltown start-ups alike. Katie holds an MA in journalism from the University of Memphis, though she has never professionally stepped foot in a newsroom.
