Entrepreneur-at-heart, strategic thinker, producer, ninja.

A seasoned event producer and communicator, Katie has produced events locally and internationally for over 10 years with notable clients such as TED Conferences LLC, Genentech, Electronic Arts, the Canadian Academy of Arts and Sciences (The JUNO Awards), the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, The City of Vancouver, Farmers Insurance, the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, and Fuji Xerox NZ.
