Katie Matthews, Owner
If you're looking for help with your content writing, messaging, and overall marketing strategy, I may just be the marketing spirit guide you have been seeking. I founded Creative Content in 2018 when I realized my creativity could expand through freelancing and consulting to help businesses with their marketing communications.
With 22 years of experience in marketing communications for a variety of industries, and a marketing degree from Colorado University, I thrive on helping companies reach their audience and achieve success.
Prior to consulting, I served as a Marketing Manager in the Architecture & Engineering industry, the software components industry, as well as local county government. My variety of experience in marketing communications for vastly different audiences gives me a unique perspective and talent for adapting to different types of content.
I'm a published author and truly enjoy writing–whether it’s for blog posts, news releases, technical pieces, or fiction novels. I call Colorado my home and go hiking any chance I get.
