Katherine has written for the FT, the Telegraph, Harper's Bazaar and the Mail on Sunday and many other print and digital publications.
As one of the first to recognise the changing landscape from traditional to digital media, Katherine set up her own consultancy in 2014 to accelerate fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands in editorialising their marketing messages across social platforms. A social media influencer in her own right, she has over 40k followers, has been featured in a broad selection of press features and is a regular panellist with experience in TV and radio including Good Morning Britain, Sky News, LBC, ABC News Radio and Radio 5 Live.
In January 2017, she launched workworkwork.co, an anti-perfectionism platform where high-profile social media stars and women with aspirational careers share stories from their 'unedited' lives.
Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life is Katherine's first book and will be released on 20th September.
