Katie works closely with MBA applicants at Vantage Point as an MBA Admissions Consultant, as well as a separate role partnering with current MBA students. This helps her to stay current, and understand the job market and evolving needs of today’s MBA candidates. Involved in recruiting and mentoring over the course of her education and career, she loves the opportunity to give back and help her bright clients to reach their potential.
Katie is classically trained through roles in management consulting and brand management, and degrees from two top-tier business schools. She began her career in management consulting with A.T. Kearney, where she primarily worked on operational and cost-cutting projects. However, she continued to find herself drawn towards the needs of the consumer, and decided to pursue an MBA at Kellogg to pivot her career into brand management. She has since been fortunate to manage iconic brands including Heinz Ketchup, Aidells, and Hillshire Farm.
Katie firmly believes in branding, and that a person can build their brand (just as a product can). She was drawn to MBA Admissions Consulting at Vantage Point for this exact reason – to help prospective business school students identify and build their story, value, and ultimately, their brand. Katie has a BBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. A Pittsburgh native, she is a diehard sports fan for both Pittsburgh and Michigan.
