Hi there! I’m Katie Kiesewetter, an English and Studio Art double major with a minor in Gender, Women’s, and Sexuality Studies. I was originally a captive of Farmington, Illinois, which is not a suburb of Chicago. It’s in central Illinois where no one really visits unless they're terribly lost or confused. Now, however, I reside on the south side of Iowa City with my partner, Nathan, and our cat, Kiki.
I work for Honors in various roles. As an administrative assistant, I am the design and outreach lead. I create a lot of promotional materials, online and in print, to communicate who we are and what we do here. I also work on the Honors Outreach Team to develop and promote various honors-related events and campaigns as well as assist in managing and creating content for our social media pages, specifically the Honors Blog.
Aside from working for Honors at Iowa, I’m involved on campus with UI Students in Design, where I work with other graphic design students and faculty to create logos and marketing materials for local businesses. I also work as a server and bartender at Northside Bistro. When I have free time, I try to get some freelance projects under my belt and am an avid watcher of Girls, the Collection, and various French movies.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about Honors or the School of Art & Art History. I'm happy to help.
