Hi, my name is Katie Alter!
I am a third-year public relations student at the University of Florida. I am also pursuing a graduate certificate in social media and a concentration in event management.
I have grew up in Coral Springs, Florida, until I moved to Gainesville to go to the University of Florida.
Upon graduating in May 2017, I plan to move to New York City, Los Angeles or London to pursue a career in entertainment public relations. I am very interested in celebrities, the entertainment industry, and popular culture.
As a millennial, I am constantly on social media, and I love learning about new apps and trends in the industry. Last year I was the Public Relations Director of my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, during which time I co-managed the chapter’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr.
This past summer I was a full-time communications intern at Paragon Events, an event management company in Delray Beach, Florida. I am currently an Account Executive for The Agency at UF. The Agency is a first-of-its kind public relations and advertising agency staffed by students and led by professionals. My client, UF Multimedia Properties, operates two radio stations in Gainesville that broadcast throughout north-central Florida.
I am also very passionate about horse back riding. I have been riding since I was 4 years old and competing since I was 7. I’ve have two horses, Brody and Lily. I am currently on the University of Florida Equestrian Team, and had the honor of representing UF at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Nationals in Springfield, Massachusetts last year.
This summer I hope be a public relations intern in New York City.
