Katie O'Leary

Marketing Coordinator

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.

— Neil Gaiman

The Imagination

Katie spent her childhood drawing cartoons and immersing herself in fantasy books, dreaming about where life could take her. No wonder then that she developed into an observant, intelligent, and creative professional talented in visual design. Katie’s previous experience doing graphic design for clients across the outdoor recreation, beauty, materials, and transportation sectors afforded her a broad perspective — a perspective that lends itself well to imagining new ways of communicating not only Acertitude’s mission of unleashing human potential, but also our clients' unique employer brands.

As a marketing coordinator, Katie supports the execution of the firm’s marketing and communications strategy. She is responsible for translating Acertitude’s brand identity and messaging into digital and printed marketing collateral, communications, and content to build brand awareness and generate leads. A natural team player, she is always ready to jump in to collaborate on the next big project with energy and enthusiasm.

Before joining Acertitude, Katie was a design consultant and assistant coordinator for a multibillion-dollar public transportation project in New York. She uses the skills she developed in client management, storytelling, and brand leadership to her advantage in her role as marketing coordinator.

Though Katie will always be a true Midwesterner at heart, having grown up outside of Cleveland, she now resides near Riverside Park in Harlem. On weekends, you can find her befriending dogs in Central Park, adding to her colorful wardrobe, and setting out on morning runs with her favorite music blasting through her headphones.
