Radio Flyer Intern Alumni

Katelyn is from LaGrange, Illinois. She was bit with the travel bug at a young age when her family travelled to Italy. Her ultimate goal is to visit every continent. She recently graduated from Illinois State University where she studied Communication. During her senior year she was lucky enough to study abroad in Stirling, Scotland. It was a rainy but eye opening experience for her.

Through previous marketing internships she found herself strongly interested in brand marketing. With a focus in brand marketing, as well as having Radio Flyer products as a kid, she knew this was a company she wanted to work for. 


My family consists of my parents, older sister, two cats, and our 3 year old French bulldog named Gibbs. Gibbs is our first dog, so he is definitely the star of the family. 

Favorite family activity:

I think I can speak for my entire family when I say that our favorite activity is camping. We rarely get to do things as a family, but every year we make sure to attend the annual campout with my entire extended family. 

FAVORITE outdoor game as a kid:

Thinking back to my playground days, my favorite outdoor game was definitely kickball.  


Currently my favorite quote is: “You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus”

What makes you Smile:

I’m always happy when I can put a smile on someone else’s face. I’ve volunteered with a few non-profits, and I find it to be very smile-worthy work. It could also be from something as simple as taking Gibbs to his favorite park. It is a guarantee that I’ll be smiling along with them!

Favorite Radio Flyer product and why:

My favorite Radio Flyer product has remained the same for 20 years, the Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle. I had one growing up, and I am still just as impressed with it now as I was then!
