Katie brings nearly 15 years of experience in communications strategy to a diverse portfolio of clients focused on food security and nutrition support, volunteer service, and children’s and women’s health.
Katie helped develop the Think BabiesTM campaign on behalf of ZERO TO THREE to bring national attention to what babies and their families need to thrive, and currently works with grantees to implement the campaign at the state level. She manages stakeholder outreach for a new safety net education campaign on behalf of Missouri Foundation for Health. Katie also provides strategic counsel to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)—including message development, content creation, earned, paid and digital media strategy and evaluation—to demonstrate the agency’s impact on communities and those who serve.
Recently, Katie worked with the Food Research and Action Center to provide technical assistance to states to implement research-based messages related to food insecurity and the food assistance programs. Katie previously served as the account lead for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) national media campaign to raise awareness and educate eligible individuals, families and trusted messengers about nutrition assistance as a resource to help families struggling to make ends meet. Additional clients have included the Corporate Coalition to Fight Hunger, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Women’s Heart Alliance, and the FINRA Investor Education Campaign.
