Katie is a Northwestern Wisconsin native who attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus where she studied at the school of Journalism and Mass communications. After earning her degree in 2005 she returned north and began working for KBJR.
As an account executive, Katie has worked with numerous business categories and tailored successful advertising plans to diverse budgets and campaign goals. She will tell you her favorite part about working in television advertising is the variety of projects in day to day work, never a dull moment when working with such different advertisers each day.
Like most Northlander’s, Katie enjoys the outdoors by swimming, fishing, and boating every chance she can in the summer. But, she also has to make hay while the sun shines and can often be found doing remodeling projects around the house. From drywall to woodworking, there isn’t much she won’t do herself and is trying to instill the value working with your hands to her 5 year old son Owen, who is learning to help (sans the power tools).
