Welcome to the State of Kate! My name is (obviously) Kate and I’m a senior majoring in Journalism: Strategic Communication at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Following graduation, I plan to pursue a career in public relations, specifically in external communication and marketing. I’m originally from Lancaster, Ohio which is about 30 minutes south of Columbus, but moved to Charlotte, North Carolina three years ago when my dad’s job changed. I never would have expected to move six hours away from college, but I love where we live now and I’m planning to move back to Charlotte after graduation.

Some of my passions and hobbies include reading, collecting books for my future library, going on adventures that involve mountains and hiking, and hanging out with our family dog Millie. As you’ll notice, my website has a blog archive. I’ve taken a break from writing while I finish up my last semester, but I plan to pick it up again after I graduate in May.

Speaking of graduation, that date is approaching very quickly (yikes!) and I am actively looking for a job or post-grad internship around the Charlotte area. My resume and portfolio can be found by following the tabs at the top of this page and if my skills match any positions you know of or are trying to fill, I’d love to speak about my experience.
