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’m a content strategist.

Before joining Facebook, I asked this same question in different contexts at the University of Missouri, where I completed a Master of Arts in strategic communication and a graduate certificate in nonprofit management. (I also received a Bachelor of Journalism in news editing from there in 2015.) In my master’s thesis, I examined the relationship between trustworthiness of news organizations and usage. While in school, I worked for newspapers, digital media companies and news startups in strategy, audience engagement and editing.

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’s forever brand loyal to Coke.

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