Katie O’Shea joined 3Points in April 2016. As the team’s content manager, she creates owned and social media content to help clients effectively tell their stories.
Prior to joining 3Points, Katie served as a marketing analyst at Springleaf Financial Services, where she created blog articles, ad copy, and other copy to be used across the company’s websites. Her primary responsibilities included maintaining the online listings for the company’s 827 branch addresses and communicating with branch managers to write local event stories, which aimed to increase foot traffic to branches and build a relationship between the brick-and-mortar and digital operations.
Katie graduated from the University of Chicago with a B.A. in English and a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Outside of work, Katie serves as a lead organizer of Chi Hack Night, Chicago’s premier weekly event for building, sharing, and learning about civic tech. Most of Katie’s hobbies involve pens and pencils — she enjoys drawing on drink coasters, writing, and solving crossword puzzles — but she also loves a good adventure around the city.
