Combining a unique and unconventional blend of creative and consulting experience, Katie launched Heat NY as the future agency model. Noticing the C-Suite were in need of a business-driven creative partner, she leaned into the market gap to create a new type of growth accelerator – a creative consultancy.
Katie’s 15+ years of creative leadership experience helped drive exponential growth for her clients and agencies alike. Driving results for clients like Aspen Dental with never been seen call rates, growth for the agency at 18x the headcount in 2 years and bucking industry norms. She has leveraged these skills to train the next generation of modern marketers with CMO transition labs and academies as a true partner to the c-suite.
Katie has been honored in Adweek’s top 50 most indispensable marketing, media and tech executives, Direct Marketing News top 40 under 40, AWNY Mother of the Year and most recently recognized as an AWNY Game Changer.
Prior to Heat & Deloitte, Katie was the president of Kirshenbaum, Bond, Senecal and Partners. An agency in which she helped triple in size and put BMW on the map from #3 OEM to #1 in volume of sales.
