Katie is a video editor who specializes in Youtube content. She fell in love with Youtube when it first started and hasn’t stopped watching since! Katie left her 9-5 in the beginning of 2020 to start her own video editing business, supporting female entrepreneurs to create bingeable, beautiful content, for their channel. She has always been passionate about social media and video editing, and felt like this was the perfect place for her.
