Katie is a journalist, blogger and social media enthusiast. Having graduated from the University of Limerick in 2009 with a 2:1 in New Media and English, Katie decided to teach abroad for a year to satisfy her wanderlust. That year stretched into two, as Katie worked in Abu Dhabi and used school holidays to explore countries including Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Jordan, Bahrain, Indonesia and Thailand. Katie freelanced and blogged throughout this time, working with a number of prestigious organisations including the Irish Times.
Eventually, Katie knew it was time to pursue a career as a journalist, so she gave up teaching and pursued a number of important internships in Ireland and the UK. From there, she returned to the Middle East, where she has worked as a journalist in the corporate sphere since 2012. Katie continues to freelance and blog, and is active on a number of social media sites.
