Katie McDonald

Communication and Engagement Coordinator

Katie is the communications and engagement coordinator with CityStudio Vancouver. She is the resident storyteller and community builder – connecting students, faculty, city staff, and community members through events and public relations. 

She is a recent graduate of Industrial Design from Emily Carr University, where she developed a strong curiosity about people and the way we live together in this world. This curiosity drives her practice as she thrives while enabling others to develop and share their stories. She turned her passions into actions through her work with MakerLabs and PechaKucha Nights Vancouver, and she brings this with her to CityStudio. Her background in writing was developed while obtaining her BA from UVic. 

When she isn’t working, Katie can be found upcycling something old into something new or cruising around town on her bicycle.
