Hi, I'm Katrina—an editor, copywriter, and content marketing strategist. I believe content should be about connection, which is why I focus on creating compelling messages that engage an audience.

My most recent experience has been working as an Account Managing Editor for Digital Press, a ghostwriting agency that specializes in thought leadership marketing.

I've also created copy for a variety of purposes and platforms, from print newspapers to online social accounts. No matter the form, I aim to connect with and inform readers while contributing to company goals.
