About Katie

I am currently responsible for program implementation for new clients and contract management. I act as the liaison between customers and recruiting teams, and partner with them to coordinate order fulfillment activities. I also coordinate our company social media strategy. In my off-time, I enjoy trying out new recipes, taking photos and dance.
