Katie graduated from the University of Wales, Cardiff with a BA (hons) in Journalism, Film and Broadcasting in 2003. She went on to work agency side in PR, with interiors clients, and then FMCG, working her way up very quickly to account manager.
Looking to experience life on 'the other side', Katie then moved to work on trade magazine and websites, ToyNews and Licensing.biz, where she spent four years as deputy editor.
Having become part of the toy and licensing industries and wanting to find her next communications role and challenge within that world, she then moved on to work as UK marketing manager for KD UK in 2012.
In 2015, Katie became a mum and has since worked on a freelance basis from home around her two daughters, Lottie, 3, and Frankie, 1.
Katie also has a lifestyle and parenting blog, where she writes about parenting, family and daily life at www.heelsandhooves.co.uk. Her other passions include her horse, her dog, and searching for that elusive, cliched, but oh so important 'me time' and life balance.
