Hey! I'm Katie Fentress and I'm the COO at WeCreate.
Katie joined our team as a Project Manager in 2019. With more than 15 years of experience in client relations, organizational leadership, sales and finance, she has the ability to wear many hats. She’s the queen of effectively planning, managing, and executing multiple projects from conception to completion while keeping our clients happy. She keeps our team organized and ahead of schedule to crush our deadlines! Katie loves being surrounded by creatives and claims it has has opened up a side of her that she never knew was there.
Born in the south side of Chicago, Katie became an NWI resident at the ripe age of 12. She attended Purdue University Northwest for Business and Finance, but hit pause when she landed her dream job as a Director of Finance. She credits this position to giving her the tools she needed to open her own small business in her hometown of Crown Point, Indiana. Before starting in the Creative Industry, Katie chased sunshine and palm trees down to Florida, and worked in digital marketing. She missed the Midwestern Hustle and quickly moved back to her mid-western roots…because there’s no place like home!
Katie lives in Crown Point with her husband and two kids. When she’s not working, you can find her at one of her children’s athletic events. But let’s be honest…she isn’t not hard to find because she is the one yelling (she calls it “cheering”) the loudest while sporting her personalized, family-branded “Fentress” spiritwear.
Even with her epic game day appearance, her spirit animal is still the butterfly: “the ability to go through profound changes and personal growth with grace and lightness”.
