As Communications and Development Coordinator, Katie is responsible for executing Field & Fork Network’s messaging and fundraising strategies. Working in close collaboration with the executive director and other staff members, she manages all aspects of Field & Fork’s communications plan including content creation, marketing and media outreach while also supporting development and donor management efforts.
Katie’s interest in local food and food systems was sparked by an internship with Edible Buffalo Magazine, which led to a part-time position with the publication after graduation. Prior to joining Field & Fork Network she also worked at P2 Collaborative of Western New York and, most recently, in the University at Buffalo’s Office of Donor and Alumni Communications, raising the visibility of the university’s graduates and philanthropy.
Katie spends her free time scheming up her next home renovation and thinking about what to make for her next cookbook club potluck. A graduate of the University at Buffalo, she lives in North Buffalo with her husband and two pets.
