EnviroPerfect Solutions is excited to add another voice to our blog, although you may find some similarities in her writing style to Susan’s blog. But we promise she comes by it naturally.
As the only child of EnviroPerfect owners and founders Tim & Susan, Katie has literally eaten, slept and breathed the EnviroPerfect “way” her whole life. So, despite her taking a completely different educational route than her parents’ suggestions, she has finally come full circle and combined her studies with her upbringing to find her passion – environmentalism and green economy.
Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from MacEwan University, Katie began her career path working with the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party and the Alberta Provincial Government, looking to make change from within, because she hoped it would be more effective than standing on the front lawn with a “Save the Planet” sign.
Katie was one of 10 bright individuals selected to participate in the 2014 Government of Alberta’s internship program, working in the Premier’s Offices of Communications and Correspondence, honing her skills to manage information, develop messaging and effectively communicate.
After the Alberta 2015 Provincial election shakeup, Katie received an offer to work for a successful business consulting firm in Saskatoon, SK, an opportunity she jumped at, excited about the prospect of learning more about business through practical experience. Working as Communications Manager for Morris Interactive, Katie was able to work with many different companies from many different sectors, both public and private, assisting clients in their communications, marketing, public relations, and other business needs.
Katie has now moved again, settling down in Ottawa, Ontario to follow her passion of environmental politics and the success of a green economy, hoping to be able to make a positive change in this great world of ours, or as newly elected French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron put it, “Make our planet great again”.
Stay tuned for Katie's first post, coming next week!
