Epstein is pleased to welcome Katie Self, our new Senior Marketing Coordinator, to its Marketing and Business Development department! In this role, Katie is responsible for creating and updating marketing materials and qualification packages, leading the preparation of proposal submittals, and working with the BD team to assist with market research. Katie actually worked for Epstein from 2007 to 2011 in the specifications department. She left to return to school to finish her degree in journalism and mass communications from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School.
Katie is originally born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, however, she’s spent time between the Phoenix desert and Chicago. She has settled in Chicago for the past 4 and a half years.
Outside of work, Katie enjoys anything that will get her outside, especially now, and, in the warmer months, she likes to golf and run the Chicago lake path. During the cooler months, she hunkers down but will always catch her Green Bay Packers on Sundays, or a Monday here and there. Pre-COVID, she spent most of her free time going to concerts, trying new restaurants and traveling as much as possible. Like so many others, she unfortunately had two European trips canceled; she is looking forward to the day when she can get those back on the books.
Katie also recently trained for and completed her first marathon (virtually) while raising money for Imerman Angels, a charity that is very near and dear to her. IA provides support to those who are fighting cancer, have survived, or been a caregiver to a loved one with cancer. Katie is a board member for this organization.
Additionally, Katie is a huge animal lover. Her dream is to buy a huge plot of land and rescue them all. Ask her about her cats.
Welcome (back) to Epstein, Katie. We are delighted to have you rejoin our organization.
