me

My name is Katie Kurylo and I am a graduate of Slippery Rock University.

I hold a B.S. in Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations. While at SRU, I was president of PRSSA for a semester and loved overseeing the group's work in our student-based PR firm, Rock PRoductions.

After an internship at Allegheny County's Department of Human Services in their communication department, I became a Communications Coordinator at Animal Friends, a premier companion animal resource center located north of Pittsburgh.

 

A large part of my job there was to design and create flyers, web content and social media posts. I was a frequent writer for their blog and was the founder of Animal Friends' Pinterest page and Instagram account. I was also the Editor-in-Chief of Animal Friends' bi-monthly newsletter, the Petsburgh Press, which is delievered to 23,000 homes 5 times a year.

 

I am currently the Digital Marketing Specialist at Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania. While in charge of social media and other digital advertising for Goodwill, retail recruiting efforts flourished, resulting in some of the lowest vacancy rates seen in recent times.

 

My accomplishments while at Goodwill consist of spearheading a "open interview day" process for more than 30 stores across our territory, a revived Instagram account with a robust and dedicated following and the cultivation of ties with local thrifting and fashion bloggers to further Goodwill's social media influence.
