Founder / Creative Director
Kimothy has over 9 years of experience leading creative projects in healthcare, government, academic and non-profit industries.
In 2014, Kimothy transitioned from her Sr. Communications & Marketing Consultant role in healthcare communications at a government sub-contractor company, Telligen, to start her dream studio: StoryPunch. She launched this studio as a way to offer design resources and services to companies committed to making a social impact whether that be working on healthcare improvement initiatives or providing economic opportunity for artisan jewelry-makers worldwide. She envisioned StoryPunch offering flexible, customized creative services for teams that didn’t necessarily have the specialization in-house or just needed the additional support.
Kimothy is also an illustrator and author and has partnered with clients such as Melinda Gates, GUCCI, and Reese Witherspoon’s media company HelloSunshine on various illustrated campaigns. She lives and works near Portland, Maine with her partner, Gregory, baby girl, Luca, and dog, Charlie.
When she’s not focused on transforming healthcare through creativity, she’s exploring New England, doodling, daydreaming or working on her next book idea.
Katie has a diverse background with experience in a number of fields including politics, nonprofits and advertising agencies, but the connective thread running through them all is marketing, communications and making a difference in the world. She’s passionate about finding each client’s unique hook and translating it into messages and strategies that are creative and meaningful.
Katie is currently pursuing her Master of Arts in Communication Management from the University of Denver. She lives in Denver with her husband, Andy, and their dramatic dog, Sassy. For the record, friends and family weighed in on the best way to describe Sassy, and other submissions included: cutie, weirdo, spirited, eccentric and ride-or-die.
