Katie is a born-and-raised South Dakotan whose love for the state is one of the reasons she's a great fit on L&S's tourism team. With prior experience in media and advertising sales at Sterling eMarketing and KELO-TV, Katie is an expert when it comes to planning and placing targeted media strategies for clients. The Salem, SD, native graduated from the University of South Dakota with a degree in Contemporary Media & Journalism. When not at work, Katie enjoys traveling the state and indulging in music and musicals from the '50s. She's also "high-key obsessed" with her dog, as any true South Dakotan should be.
