B.S., Communication and English
Work: As a senior communications manager, Katie leads internal and external communications for PPG Architectural Coatings, a business unit of PPG Industries.
Home: Sewickley, with husband Brandon.
Proudest Achievement: Earning her M.B.A. “Going to school at night for nearly three years while working full-time was incredibly challenging. However, at the end of the day, the hard work, the constant studying, and the lack of sleep were all worth it.”
What She’s Passionate About: Katie enjoys reading fiction as an outlet from the stress of everyday life and as a means of continuing to expand her vocabulary. She also plays soccer and is an avid runner.
Favorite RMU Memory: “Freshman year, when I was living in a new city, playing soccer and making friends. It was also the time when I met the man who I would marry eight years later."
Next RMU Event Attending: Tomorrow, Katie will be participating in Making Connections III, helping to mentor seniors majoring in communication.
Why She Stays Connected: “I am very grateful for all that RMU gave me, and I feel that I can in some way give back to RMU by engaging with students, sharing my experiences and helping them in any way that I can."
