hi, i'm katherine.

I was born in Rhode Island - the ocean state.  I grew up loving the beach, but hating seafood.  Fish still freak me out.

I moved to New York for college when I was 18.  In my time at NYU I lived in 2 countries, tried 3 majors, and worked 4 internships.  The city let me test-drive my life.  It taught me how to talk to all kinds of people, and how to ask the right questions. 

I received my Masters of Business/Strategy from the VCU Brandcenter and am now a Freelance Strategist in NYC, consulting with companies like JOJA and 72andSunny.  Download my resume.


good, clean, fun facts


I have a souvenir spoon collection I inherited from my grandparents. I have to get a spoon from every place I travel, even if that means stopping by a Hudson News on an airport layover.

I named my cat Pooka after the dog in Anastasia. My seven-year-old self would be very proud I kept our promise.

I lived in New York for six years, so I didn't drive a car for six years. One of my first times back behind the wheel was a 9-hour drive to Richmond.

I’ve always loved outer space. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to play the “human” in my first Brandcenter project. It amplified my love of the unknown, and my reputation as a friend of the cosmos.
