When it comes to how she got started in marketing roles, Katheryn shares:

"I started my career at Forbes and did a ton of different jobs there, which has, several years later, made me a marketer who's inherently narrative-driven and knows how to be efficient with the media sector's scrappy way of doing business."

She also shares about how to keep your brand fresh over time:

"Don't be afraid to loosen your grip on the brand. We've benefited so much from our willingness to take experiments and introduce real range in our narratives and visuals."
