Katie graduated from the School of Journalism in May 2007. After graduation Katie stayed in Carbondale and interned at Arthur Agency from May '07-August '07. Katie said “If I could give advice to any undergrad students it would be this....internships, internships, internships! Not only does it help to build up your resume, but it gives you exposure to the different fields (in her case advertising).” Katie’s internships spanned from sales, to traditional agency media, event advertising, to digital media. In January 2013 she was officially promoted to be the Associate Producer for the agency. This was a newly formed position that had not previously existed. As associate producer her duties range from finding talent to securing insurance for video production. Katie is a true testament to Saluki pride.
