MaryKate Callahan

Content Strategist

United States of America

My passion for writing can trace back to the second grade and a well-received poem about snow. Since then, I've done a few things to refine that passion, like graduate from college with a bachelor's degree in English/Communications and gain professional experience through various internships and creative positions. I have done work with digital marketing, corporate blogging, social media, creative writing, editorial writing, and copywriting, as well as editing for all the above. I think learning new things is what it's all about. If you come away with nothing else, at least know that I have a sense of humor, could spend the rest of my days writing, and am actively trying to hang out with Bill Murray.
