Managing Editor

Kathryn has been a writer since she was able to put pencil to paper. Over the years she developed her editing skills too and now spends most of her time putting those special final touches on the already wonderful work of the Alaska Business team of talented writers. Kathryn is also a social media aficionado and has worked as social media manager for several organizations. During her down time, she enjoys watching movies, dancing, and playing video games. A native Northern Californian, Kathryn studied at San Francisco State University majoring in journalism with a minor in magazine writing. She has spent more than two decades writing and editing about commodities markets, finance, and healthcare. A favorite hobby is to move to cities she’s never visited. Sometimes it works out (Anchorage and Montreal) and sometimes it doesn’t (cities to be remain unnamed). Kathryn’s favorite things about Alaska are the wildlife and winter weather.
