About Katie

Katie is a corporate communications manager for Boingo Wireless. When Katie is not talking Wi-Fi with media, you’re likely to find her doing her best imitation of a culture vulture at concerts, comedy shows, movies and museums.

Cherie Gruenfeld, Boingo’s official butt-kicker, set the bar high at the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, not just for herself, but others that will follow. At 71 years young, she made history as she set a new course record for her age group, the third time Cherie has laid down a course record in Kona. It was also her 13th win for her age group at IRONMAN. It’s no wonder that USA Triathlon (USAT) awarded Cherie the title of Grandmaster of the Year for 2015.

Life as a Boingo Intern: Part 4

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. To tell you the truth, I was a little worried. Never have I taken on responsibility like this before. But while I write in sadness as my internship comes to a close, I am happy to report that I have truly come a long way. I have learned so much this summer at Boingo, not only about marketing and the workplace in general, but about myself. Aside from individual projects and assignments that I’ve gained tremendous experience from, perhaps the most captivating part has been witnessing how the business comes together through meticulous collaboration and teamwork. A prime example of this was the Hackathon, a marathon style event that saw engineers team up with marketers and HR specialists join forces with finance gurus in an attempt to create an idea that could catapult the business forward. I was able to be a part of it by acting as an ambassador, along with Spencer Johnson, with whom I forged a friendship throughout the event that kept us at the office well beyond normal work hours. Although I did not contribute to a team, I

Life as a Boingo Intern: Part 3

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. It’s now the end of week 9 and I am having mixed feelings about my internship coming to an end in three weeks. On one hand, I am looking forward to going back to New Orleans and seeing my friends. But on the other hand, I am sad to leave Boingo, a place that I have come to know and love over the past two months. The fun and energetic vibe that exists within these four walls is truly contagious and conducive to success. Never did I think that coming to work every day would bring me so much joy. Waking up routinely for work is without a doubt better than waking up routinely for school. But then again, maybe Boingo has just spoiled me and I am in for a culture shock when I next return to the workforce.
