Katharine’s rich experience totals 12 years, ranging from blogging to traditional PR to social strategy to brand launches. She began her NYC career at Ketchum as the first junior staffer in their Tech Practice where she serviced IBM, AMD and Kodak. After years at Ketchum, she followed her passion for emerging media to social agency Attention, where she honed her specialty while managing social for various brands that included Ligne Roset, Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas, Smirnoff Ice, Red Stripe beer, and Mattel’s Monster High and Ever After High. From there she took on a leadership position within Devries Global as their VP of Social Planning where she oversaw owned and earned social media strategy, creative, social playbook development, community management and influencer work for P&G Fabricare brands such as Tide, Gain and Bounce. Now within her role on OMD Create, Katharine spends her time developing creative strategies for clients that are grounded in audience insights. 

For fun, Katharine enjoys experimenting with cooking, following and embracing health and wellness trends and taking way too many photos of her cats.
