Katie is a graphic designer interested in both print and digital mediums. She recently received her BFA in Graphic Communications and a Marketing minor. During her undergraduate years, she participated in two repeat-internships for Shaw Floors and Heidelberg USA, where print design was her sole passion. Katie soon discovered her love for digital design after taking only a few courses on the subject in her last semester as an undergraduate. Upon graduation, Katie landed her first Web Designer gig, and has since moved on to become a Digital Designer for CCA&B — home of The Elf on the Shelf®! Katie doesn’t know where life will take her next, but with her strong educational foundation, passion for creativity, and perseverance to go the distance, she knows anything is possible!
