Katherine Davis

Founder and Principal

A last-minute request to give a keynote address at an industry meeting in 2008 precipitated an important decision:

What was Katherine going to name her new consulting practice?

She had recently moved to Denver, Colorado, from Rome, Italy, where she’d spent five years working in corporate communications for the United Nations. Earlier, Katherine’s work as an award-winning journalist in New York City had sparked a passion for public health issues that led her to shift her career and use her communication skills for advocacy.

She knew strategic planning was her strong suit and how she wanted to best serve clients.

After running through a number of creative names, Katherine finally heeded the advice of smart colleagues: Pick a name that easily communicates who you are and what you do.

Hence, Davis Communication Strategies was born.

The name stuck. The client roster grew.

So did her network of ace consultants: experts in public relations, marketing, social media, design, web development, and more, each bringing at least 10 years of relevant experience to every account.

More than a decade later, the fun continues. After several years of enjoying living in both Denver and New York, she moved to Brooklyn full time in 2017. Three years later, the global pandemic led her to return to Colorado, where she continues to work with clients and consultants all over the world. ​

While her formal education took place at Columbia University, the London School of Economics, and the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication, in recent years Katherine has been a student of the Hoffman Institute, The School of Womanly Arts, Transcendental Meditation, and many other life-changing courses and teachers.

International travel also serves as one of the greatest classrooms she’s ever known, having visited nearly 70 countries – and counting.

Katherine has served on several nonprofit boards over her career. Most recently, she was a board member of the Women First International Fund, a nonprofit that supports women’s economic empowerment in India, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda.
