KATIE MAYER – Editor & Project Manager, ROX Media Group
If a project involves communication – written, verbal, digital or client communication – chances are Katie Mayer is a part of it at ROX Media Group. As a graduate of the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Mayer started her career as an award-winning beat reporter for the East Valley Tribune newspaper, then located in Mesa, Arizona. Next, she moved into public affairs/relations where she held numerous positions in the government, nonprofit and higher education sectors. Today, she oversees publishing projects and writes and edits copy for a variety of ROX Media Group publications. She has appeared on local television shows many times and twice nationally, and is a regular guest lecturer to journalism students at ASU. She is married to fellow Sun Devil, Jared, and together they have one son and three rescued Chihuahuas. In her free time, she enjoys DIY home renovation projects, true crime shows, playing table tennis and reading as many magazines as she can get her hands on. She is a loyal supporter of various animal and child welfare groups.
