Since graduating with a B.A. in Cultural Studies from McGill University, the Toronto native has spent her career in various roles within the Canadian music industry. After over a decade at EMI, and additional years since at Universal (post-acquisition), she has proven herself versatile, and allowed her previous roles in marketing, media & artist relations, and operations to organically lead her into a role she is very passionate about.

As Senior Manager of Label Partnerships, Katie works exclusively with independent labels, both Canadian + International, within the major label distribution structure.  She is excited about networking with other positive, thought-provoking individuals within various facets of the industry in an on-going quest for knowledge.
