Katie’s focus is on building relationships with businesses and nonprofits in Kansas City, particularly schools, and seeing where Lillian James can help them as their marketing agency. She graduated from the University of Kansas’s School of Journalism with a minor in Business (she says, Rock Chalk Jayhawk!), and prior to Lillian James, directed development and marketing for a nonprofit. Her favorite part of her job is sharing what we do here with others — the idea of having an entire team to grow your business or organization is exciting, and she loves telling everyone.
Her proudest accomplishment:
My time in urban education. I spent two years as a Corps Member with Teach for America and four years at a wonderful charter school. Working with low-income students created a strong passion in me for educational equity and excellence for all students.
Who would play her in a movie:
I would love for the Olsen twins to tag-team the role.
What makes her a valuable Lillian James team member:
My passion for what LJC delivers to its clients.
