About Me


Greetings, Katie Hill here! I am a graduate student, a freelance writer, a runner/hiker/solo traveller, a diehard Boston sports fan and a book nerd. I hail from the small town of Canton, Connecticut, but I moved to downtown Boston in 2015 to get my Bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in environmental studies from Emerson College. In 2019 I packed up a U-Haul trailer and drove across the country to my current home in Missoula, where I am working towards my master’s degree in the Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism program at the University of Montana. I am also building my skillset and portfolio as a freelance environmental journalist and travel blogger. Check out my clips to see my published work, or take a look through the Girl’s Guide blog for musings on travel, outdoor recreation, environmental issues, books about all three, and my running commentary on grasping for a writing career. I’m always looking for creative opportunities and friendly conversations, so don’t hesitate to reach out through my services page.
