Katelyn Fogarty

Director, Digital Marketing
Acquia, Inc.

At Acquia my main responsibility is managing and maintaining Acquia.com. I've been managing Drupal websites for about 7 years now, but started off as a web and graphics designer. I transitioned into a front-end web developer in a marketing organization, started building and managing Drupal sites then moved into marketing management. I came from a mix of consumer and business marketing prior to Acquia and with my strong skills in design and development I have been able to move quickly with Drupal and love it!
