Associate Lecturer

Katie has worked as a creative copywriter and creative director at a raft of top London agencies, big and small. An ex Creative Advertising MA student herself, she knows exactly what it's like to be part of Falmouth's School of Communication, and exactly what it takes to apply the skills taught on this course in securing the kind of job that aspiring creatives come to dream about. 

From working in Channel 4's in-house creative agency, 4Creative, to more traditional top 10 agencies such as VCCP and TBWA, to the London arm of the global marketing services group, Dentsu, she values and prioritises developing strategic creativity within the industry's wider commercial context, to make students truly employable.
After 15 years at the heart of the London ad scene, Katie re-located to Cornwall, and joined Falmouth University in 2018 as an Associate Lecturer, teaching Campaign Creation, and Strategy & Planning.
