Katie is SteegeThomson’s go-to for bringing technical and scientific information to life with accuracy and integrity. Her favorite part of the job is finding ways to convey the passion behind complex work, whether she’s writing about climate change, nanotechnology or space travel. She’s also a top-notch copy editor, project manager and social media guru.
What is your favorite aspect of communications/marketing?
My favorite part of this work is figuring out how to translate and express the passion that drives our clients to do what they do, even when the work is technical or difficult for an uninvolved person to understand.
If you could wave a magic wand, what ill in the world would you solve and why?
Lack of connection. I think many social and environmental issues stem from not being able to see other people’s problems as our own.
Do you have any unusual skills or talents?
I’ve gotten really good at identifying plants—and knowing which ones are edible. I’d be good to have around after the zombie apocalypse.
