A journalist and editor, Katie has more than 20 years’ experience of writing and editing.

After completing a BA in history at Anglia Ruskin, she trained as a history teacher before deciding that teaching wasn’t for her and looking instead for a job in the media.

Katie started out at the Cambridge Evening News, where she worked while she completed an NCTJ course in journalism. She then took up a role as a reporter on a graphic arts magazine, before going on to edit several business titles, a weekly newspaper for teachers (SecEd) and a current affairs magazine. She has won awards from the Institute of Internal Communication and the Seahorse Club for her magazine articles.

She has also worked on books, project managing BTEC, GCSE and A level textbooks for the educational publisher Pearson, editing AA travel guides and contributing to books published on behalf of the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Katie joined KISS in May 2018 from Cambridge University Press, where she worked on a new Press website for authors and contributed to a series of publishing guides for academics. She has a CIM-accredited Marketing Foundation Certificate.

Outside work, she plays the clarinet and bass guitar.
