Katie joined the Playwrights' Center in the summer of 2018 as the Director of Individual and Major Gifts. With five years of fundraising experience, she is charged with building a network of individual donors--providing a closer connection between the Playwrights' Center and supporters. Prior to joining PWC, Katie served in a number of fundraising roles at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, her last role as the Associate Director of Individual Giving. While at the Guthrie, she built numerous programs that lead to record-breaking results and a newly revived donor community. Although now an adopted Minnesotan, Katie is originally from the small county of Derbyshire in the UK, her family are all still based "over the pond", and she visits once or twice a year. In addition to her passion for connecting others to art, she holds a Masters in Drama and Theatre Studies with an emphasis in Scenic Design from the University of Kent, Canterbury. When not at PWC, you may find her adventuring with her pup Rocket, training for her next marathon, or binge watching the latest Netflix series.
