A Digital Content & Social Media Strategist with over 10 years of experience, I'm a creative pragmatist drawn to community building and the role technology can play in supporting our real-world connections.  

After a move from New York to Vermont, I launched my own web strategy company, Bright Momentum Creative, to serve small businesses and non-profits in Vermont and beyond.

My strengths include web strategy, social media strategy, content creation, copyediting, community management, and email marketing. I have partnered with over twenty brands, organizations, and creatives since 2014, many of whom I've created brand new websites using Squarespace. 

I'm eager to leverage this experience in securing a position within an organization requiring sustained expertise with larger, more extensive projects.

Thanks to Katie, The Nature Museum launched our completely revamped website and social media presence. I couldn’t be happier with the way it has turned out. I am continually impressed with how easy Katie is to communicate with—just real, down to earth, and she is organized! Katie listens and spends ample time understanding our mission and events to make sure our message was always on point. She has pulled off some very tricky programming feats to get the site to do what we wanted, while not losing sight of the need for splendid, fresh aesthetics.
