ABOUT

Katie is a Canadian multimedia journalist, producer, and digital communications professional with a Masters degree in International Multimedia Journalism from Newcastle University (UK). 

Her interest in media development and humanitarian news initially led her to work overseas in Malawi with the Canadian organization, Journalists for Human Rights, and later, with the UK-based NGO, Concern Universal.

In 2012, she completed a communications fellowship at the Central Tibetan Administration in northern India, where she also worked with the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy to produce her first documentary. Katie then went on to work as a series writer for the award-winning international social travel series, Peeta Planet, which broadcasts to more than 50 million viewers across the Middle East. Her latest professional endeavor had her working as a Resident Journalist and the Digital Content Creator for the crees Foundation, a conservation organization based in the Peruvian Amazon. 

She is currently focused on a number of multimedia projects that allow her to blend her passion for documentary stories and creative media with her interests in social justice and exploring the theme of identity through personal narratives. 

Katie has trained with the BBC and Press Association and contributed to several media outlets, including Inter Press Service, the BBCIRIN, and the Sunday Sun. Clients who have contracted her communications services include Concern Universal, the crees Foundation, and Cowichan Women Against Violence

Katie is a member of the International Federation of Journalists and is Inbound Certified.

There is a calmness about Mudi State Residence, with its towering trees and extensive gardens. In such a setting, it is difficult to imagine the starkly different atmosphere that engulfed Malawi’s commercial capital just one month ago.
