Katie joined Burness in June 2021 as a digital coordinator. As a member of the digital team, she provides overall digital support for various clients by drafting social media copy, developing digital reports, editing videos and more. 

Katie graduated summa cum laude from Old Dominion University (ODU), Norfolk, VA, in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and sport management. She competed on its division I swim team and was the social media/marketing co-chair of the student-athlete advisory committee, where she used the platform to give each student-athlete a voice.

In addition to her student-athlete commitment, she was also an active member of ODU’s student chapter of the American Marketing Association and held multiple marketing jobs with ODU’s recreation and wellness department to promote health and wellness opportunities to students, staff and the surrounding community.

Katie held several marketing roles to hone her digital marketing skills while pursuing her undergraduate degree, including social media manager of Escape Room Virginia and an internship at the Meridian Group.

Katie grew up in the Bethesda, MD-area and is thrilled to be part of the Burness team. Outside of the office, you can find Katie swimming, running or biking, relaxing by the pool, giving swim lessons, baking or spending time with family and friends!
