Katharine Rovinsky, Austin AMA Director of Volunteer Engagement

 

A self-proclaimed data nerd, Katharine works in market research, supporting clients in technology, finance and energy. Originally from northeastern Pennsylvania, Katharine and her husband moved to Austin after stints in Orlando and Chicago. Having studied urban planning, she takes an unusually keen interest in the transportation, politics and tourism of every place she visits. Here in Austin, she enjoys bar trivia, swimming, hiking and outdoor events.

As director of volunteer engagement, Katharine helps connect members to our committees. She’s eager to hear from members who are looking to get involved and grow their local network.

 

 

Why did you join the AMA?

I work from home, which gets lonely. I joined AMA to connect with other professionals.

 

Where do you go for marketing information and thought leadership online?

I tend to read up on clients’ industries such as BAI Banking Strategies and E-SOURCE for energy.

 

What is the one thing you’ve been inspired by lately?

I love tacky outdoor advertising. When I see all of the neon signs in Austin – I wish I had the skills to design something like that.

 

What is one word you’d use to describe yourself?

Intense. “Too seriously”…“only a game”… in my heart, there is no such thing.
