Meet the girl who built the dream

Founder katie krogstad roed has spent the last 14 years fueling communication strategies for some of the nation’s top brands. Her marketing, writing and design portfolio expands to over 64 clients in various industries across the globe—from major players like Microsoft and Nokia to the flower shop down the street.

A flexible and creative connector, she’s built a dedicated team of thinkers, dreamers and doers that work together to drive engagement for brands. From strategy sessions and creative concepts—to making the complex simple—katie brings knowledge, passion and a smile to each project.

When she’s not working, you’ll find this espresso addict, busy mama and aspiring yogi digging for treasures at the nearest estate sale or soaking up sun at the lake. And if you play your cards right, she might even send you her world famous tater tot hotdish recipe—just don’t tease her about her Minnesota accent.



At SugarBrooke Creative we help brands discover their purpose and deliver their promise. From marketing strategy and digital demand to web design and content creation—we bring big ideas to brands of all sizes.







Working with Katie over the past several years, it’s hard to sum up the positive difference she’s made in just a few short sentences. Highly versatile, she’s able to simplify and write about complex topics while offering creative strategies that boost marketing efforts. She continually amazes us with her ability to come up with content campaigns that make a strong impact on online marketing results. Proactively working to strengthen client relationships, Katie adds tremendous value to our business and is a joy to work with.

Jennifer Garcia

Partner & CEO, Red Bamboo

Katie is far and away one of the best writers and marketers I’ve worked with. Her writing and research skills have allowed her to create compelling content for a variety of industries from non-profits to high tech firms. Katie’s ability to write everything from web copy to whitepapers has made her a first choice for many of our clients and our “go to” person for the many integrated marketing programs we create.

Barbara Pfeiffer

Chief Executive Officer, Nurture Marketing

I have had the pleasure of working with SugarBrooke Creative for the past four years. Katie has been a tremendous asset to our business. She manages all of our marketing and advertising efforts – and is always coming up with creative ways to help grow our business. For these reasons and more, I’d highly recommend working with SugarBrooke Creative!

Richard Keller

Owner, Drexel Hall Kansas City

I chose Katie out of hundreds of writers to assist me with a large-scale copywriting and PR project – not only for the quality of her work, but because of her positive ‘above and beyond’ attitude. Since then, we have worked on several projects together and I am always impressed by her dedication, diverse talents, and creative ideas. She makes each project a joy and I feel fortunate to work alongside her.

Michelle Etherton

Owner, The Word Zone

I had never met Katie face to face – however while working with her on my logo and business branding via email, I felt like I had known her for years. I explained to her what I was all about and what I wanted to portray in my floral business – she ‘got it’ immediately and it shines through on her design. I couldn’t be more grateful for her creativity, patience, and thoroughness. She took every idea I had in my head and made it a reality.

Meghan Palubicki

Owner, The Red Poppy

Katie has been an awesome blessing to my business! She goes above and beyond and is truly great at what she does. Katie has helped me with countless things—from building an attractive website for my startup to designing packaging for my products. But it hasn’t stopped there. She’s provided business guidance and encouragement along the way. Katie has become a mentor, role model and great friend. I am so very grateful to work
with her.
