Hi, I’m Katie. I specialize in writing marketing content that speaks directly to your audience—whether in the field, the classroom or the C-suite.

It might sound like the opening line of a bad joke: What do farming, education and leadership have in common?
Punchline: Me! OK … so humor isn’t my strong suit.

Let me tell you where I excel and where I can help you succeed: I’m a strong writer who doesn’t need handholding. I have extensive professional and personal experience in each of these markets.

I’m your path to better communication with farmers, educators or business leaders. I can script strong, persuasive copy and content that will resonate with your professional audiences.
