Prior to joining Kivvit, Katie spent 15 years leading strategic communications in the nonprofit sector, including work with a mission-driven financial institution and an environmental law firm. In these roles, she worked with financial industry partners, philanthropic institutions, real estate developers, clean energy companies, and community-based organizations to reach targeted influencers and achieve strategic goals. She considers herself a generalist who can write, design, tech, and produce just about any communications product with a high degree of logic, creativity, and heart.
