About Katie Johnston:
Katie Johnston is the founding director of Pulptown, an Orlando-based digital platform, that she helped launch with parent company, WhereBy.Us, in March 2018. Three days a week, she sends a newsletter filled with local news and events that aims to connect Orlandoans over culture, history and civic life. Katie’s freelanced as a writer for local brands, influencers and other publications for more than a decade. When she’s not cranking out a newsletter or posting funny memes (and sometimes witty captions) on Instagram, she’s most likely drinking wine — more oft than not, she’s doing both at the same time. You can connect with her at firstname.lastname@example.org or Akatiej on most social sites.
