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.
During a truly difficult task, most people break down. Unfortunately, I broke down at 17,200 feet on Denali's highest camp. After a 9-hour hike that left me mentally and physically exhausted. My body was so spent, I couldn't unlace my boots or take off my harness.
I'm not going to lie, the thrill of moving to a new place is one of my favorite feelings. It's a blissful - and admittedly cheesy - "anything can happen" rush. A new city, new people, endless places to explore. But not everyone sees it that way. Many people I know are terrified of moving.
