Katie recently graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.S. in journalism and a minor in business. She has returned to her hometown of Irvine with great appreciation and excitement to regain her status as a local.
Katie held several internships during her breaks at KU. She spent the summer of 2014 at the Orange County Register as a magazines intern for OC Family. She enjoyed the freedom and fun of writing event roundups and product reviews for readers in her own community. That following summer, Katie caught the travel bug and interned abroad in Dublin, Ireland in a hotel's Meetings and Events team. Finally she returned to California for the summer of 2016 to intern in the
Destination Marketing department for a Los Angeles public relations firm. She has returned to the company post-graduation to work on a variety of hospitality clients in the U.S. and abroad.
When Katie is not commuting to L.A., she is spending time rediscovering Irvine as a young adult and finding the best in dining, nightlife, and entertainment galore.
