Katie is a native Chicagoan. She graduated from Carthage College with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and a minor in history. Her love of language and travel led her to Santiago, Chile, where she taught English, managed a language institute, and translated. Her translation focus was academic articles for journal publication and international development content. She’s worked at Multilingual since 2014, as an editor, project manager, team lead and now Production Director.

What motivates her at work is finding solutions and making work fulfilling for her colleagues, linguists, and clients. She loves how the translation and localization industry brings together so many areas, including writing, linguistics, technology and business.

When not at work, Katie likes being outdoors. She plays soccer and sails on Lake Michigan, refining her skills at trimming a spinnaker. She loves reading, traveling and exploring.
