Hi there. I'm Kaitie.

I'm a second-year graduate student studying strategy at the VCU Brandcenter in Richmond, Va. Before entering brandland, I spent seven years working as a journalist for various Congress-focused publications in Washington, D.C. Prior to that I spent my undergraduate years in Milwaukee, Wis., where I earned my degree in journalism with a minor in political science from Marquette University. Minus a brief stint in Tokyo, I grew up in the Chicago area.

When I'm not working or going to school, I'm probably curling. I've been playing that weird sport that pops up during the Winter Olympics for more than 20 years. I compete as often as I can and currently serve as secretary for the Curling Club of Virginia.

I also love trying new recipes, knitting, adding stamps to my passport, riding my bike, subscribing to more podcasts than I can feasibly listen to and watching movies that are so bad they’re funny.
