Katie Burns


I craft content and create connection for the Net Impact conference. From researching topical concepts to developing speaker sessions, I help shape the experience for expanding educational and networking opportunities during the gathering.

Prior to joining Net Impact, I worked at Spitfire Strategies, a communications consulting firm serving progressive nonprofit and foundation clients. I also helped build frank, and international three-day conference for public interest communicators and strategists, and graduated with honors from the University of Florida with a degree in public relations.

  • The most satisfying thing about my work is: Constantly learning new ways that social innovation leaders are using their resources to make an impact, and then getting to turn around and share those insights with others.
  • The skill that has helped me is: I love geeking out over personality tests. Myers-Briggs is my go-to, usually. Get me chatting about types and I get so excited. I think my love of these various traits help me find the best in my teammates and how we can balance each other. (I’m an ENFP, in case you were wondering!)
  • I never leave the house without: I used to say my camera, but now it’s just my phone. I love capturing moments throughout my day from behind the lens.
