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 completed an NCTJ course in journalism, starting out as a reporter on a graphic arts magazine, before going on to edit several business titles, a weekly newspaper for teachers 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 text books for the educational publisher Pearson and editing AA travel guides.

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.
