About Me

Hi! I'm Katie. 

I'm a writer, an avid reader, a doggy mom, and a pizza lover. Yup, that pretty much sums me up. But to get serious here... I'm a wordsmith who is passionate about English. 

For over ten years, I've used my writing skills professionally. I've reviewed grant proposals, edited theses and dissertations, taught college-level composition classes, assessed writing samples for job candidates, tutored students of all ages, and written content for websites, blogs, newsletters, and promotional materials. I recently held a workshop on business writing (see below!). 

Master of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from Southern New Hampshire University, 2017
Master of Arts in English from South Dakota State University, 2007

Personal aspirations:
A lifelong dream of mine is to become a best-selling author. I'm working on my first novel for publication. Stay tuned!
