Growing up on a ranch in Montana, Katy learned at an early age the value of a solid work ethic and general scrappiness. As one of the main horse trainers on the ranch, Katy was occasionally bucked off young horses and would hear her dad behind her shouting, “Get back up on the horse.” Back up she went. That philosophy and tenaciousness are ingrained in Katy today.
Katy founded Remix Marketing Inc. in 2016 because she’s passionate about spearheading impactful thought leadership programs for her clients. Brainstorming compelling topics and narratives, Katy helps bring ideas to life on stage at industry events and in written content for clients such as Adobe and Facebook.
Before Remix, Katy co-founded Big Sky, a successful Silicon Valley marketing/PR firm. Earlier she managed PR programs for Apple including Media and Entertainment, mobile products and QuickTime. She started her career on the PR agency side.
Katy lives in Los Angeles. She is a member of the Forbes Agency Council, and has volunteered with TEDx as a speaker curator and coach. She's served as a member of the board of directors for both the Peninsula Humane Society and the Working Wonders Children’s Museum. These days, she still owns and loves horses, but they aren’t young and she doesn’t get bucked off.
