Q :: What is your most prized possession?
A :: My positive attitude. It fosters my sense of adventure, my drive to turn every experience into a positive life lesson, my belief that people (in general) are good, and so much more. I truly can’t imagine life without it.
After more than a year of freelance work on accounts such at Visit Golden and the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships at Vail and Beaver Creek, Katie Converse continues building on a strong track-record in travel and tourism public relations. Before going out on her own, she was most recently part of the communications team at VISIT DENVER, promoting Denver as a leisure and business travel destination. This required working closely with hotel and resort properties, spas, restaurants, city agencies, and other stakeholders to garner national and international media placements.
Prior to her time at VISIT DENVER, Katie worked on multiple Vail Resorts PR teams—first at Keystone Resort and then for Vail and Beaver Creek. While promoting some of the world’s most elite ski destinations, she formed valuable local and national media relationships and honed skills originally formed at her first communications job with Colorado Ski Country USA. Katie is a graduate of Gonzaga University. She and her family live in Golden.
