About

My name’s Katie and I’ve got a thing for cities. Neighborhoods. Local places. All that.

To me, nothing’s better than exploring a new area through travel or just perusing around on Google Maps.

I earned my Masters degree in City Planning, with a concentration in urban design, from the University of Pennsylvania’s design school in Philadelphia.

I worked in consulting for a few years, focusing on land use, site planning, urban design, community engagement, economic development, and marketing. Then I created Locality Studio.

Locality Studio allows me to work with the people I believe to be vital to any community’s success: small businesses, community groups, and nonprofits (just to name a few!). By using my experience and love of art and design, I am able to enhance visual identities of our communities and those within them that make them thrive.

Fun facts about me:

  • I love playing music. I play guitar, piano, and ukulele. I’m hoping to learn the violin one day.
  • I have a black cat named Milo and we’re both advocates for FIV+ cats!
  • I was born with a cleft lip and palate and am a huge advocate of craniofacial awareness

Thanks for stopping by. I hope we can work together soon!
