Hello! I’m Katie Petix, a business consultant specializing in social media and digital communications. For seven years I worked with small businesses and organizations giving me a unique appreciation for detail and a love of crafting bespoke digital marketing plans. I gradually began to realize this was my passion. I decided to take my career to the next level and returned to university to study digital media and web technologies.

After my time at The University of Maryland, I went on to work with The Smithsonian and CNN collaborating with their marketing and interactive departments to create a comprehensive social media strategy and implementation for a variety of programs, special exhibitions and events. 

In my free time when I’m not researching the latest and greatest in the world of digital and social media, I blog my personal journey on Today I Want, as well as contributing to many other blogs and media outlets. I enjoy traveling with my husband, relaxing with our two adorable rescue cats, Meatball & Tiny Dancer, and exploring the wonderful sites and vegetarian delights in my home base, Washington, D.C. as well as the Mid-Atlantic U.S.
