My name is Kathryn Mueller. My expertise is in public relations and marketing. I love creating content that is inspiring and ignites change - stories that pull at heartstrings, make you believe anything is possible and unite people.
I started my career in public relations and marketing in the sports industry. I played soccer in college and enjoyed promoting the beautiful game. After dipping my toes in sports marketing, I decided to switch gears. I served for a year in AmeriCorps where I found a passion for helping people in need. I worked with the American Red Cross as a public information officer and communications coordinator. In times of disaster, I disseminated information to keep people informed, locate urgently needed services and find hope.
After my year of service with AmeriCorps, I joined Seattle Children's public relations team. I worked in health care for more than 10 years, sharing stories of hope, care and cures. My expertise is in strategic communications, content creation, crisis, media training and storytelling. Working for Seattle Children's Hospital was truly a dream come true.
Today, I work for Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington. I am the marketing and communications manager. I enjoy helping make wishes a reality and bringing hope and joy to children with critical illnesses.
In my free-time, I write for various publications including the Richmond Beach Community newspaper, ParentMap, Tiny Beans and Seattle's Child.
I also have a master's degree in strategic communications from Washington State University.
I believe in being a life-long learner, and I look forward to continuing my education.
