Kaitlynn MartinCommunications and Content Specialist

I am a storyteller who is fueled by forming connections and creating impactful content. My love for writing bloomed during my childhood, and that passion led me to telling a wide range of stories while working as a journalist in Dallas, TX; St. Louis, MO; and London, UK.

Now in higher education marketing and communications, I continue to use my journalistic skills and mindset to craft and amplify stories of students, alumni, faculty, and other community members who are following their passions.

Formerly, I was the lead marketing content strategist at University of Wisconsin Extended Campus. I am thrilled to join the School of Human Ecology in the pursuit of sharing the inspiring, exciting, and unexpected stories that are changing our world in small and big ways.
