Hi there!! My name is Katie Sullivan and I’ve been with Pulse since 2009!! That’s me in the picture above modeling one of our dresses back in the day when I first started. I’ll never forget when I was 16 and my dad told me I HAD to get a job. I’d heard of Pulse through my sister, so I walked in and asked if they were hiring. The rest is history. I started as a sales associate and now I do just about everything!
I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I have two sisters, with me being the youngest. After graduating from Parkway West High School, (I figured I would just throw that out there since it’s the classic St. Louis question!) I moved to New York City to pursue a degree in Fashion Merchandising Management from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After my two-year associates degree was complete, I missed my family and STL so much that I moved back home. Luckily, Pulse hired me again and I finished my schooling in 2015 with a bachelors degree from Fontbonne University in Fashion Merchandising.
Since then, I’ve absolutely loved increasing my responsibilities at Pulse. If you’re a Pulse shopper, chances are you’ve seen one of my posts on Facebook or Instagram, or received an email from me at one point or another! I write all the descriptions for our flash sale items and even create our emails.
In most recent news, on April 9, 2016 I married my husband Tim. He’s a chiropractor in South County, MO. He’s originally from Ohio, but as a born and bred St. Louisian, I was quick to convince him to stay here in STL! Next to fashion, I probably know the most about chiropractic just from hearing my husband and brother-in-law (who is also a chiropractor!) talk together.

Favorite food:I find it SO HARD to pick one favorite food! I would have to say my favorite meal would be steak, rice or potatoes, broccoli, and salad. But, I also have a huge sweet tooth for anything chocolate!
Guilty Pleasure: Binge-watching Netflix shows! I hate to admit this, but a couple years ago I watched 10 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy in 3 weeks! I’ve also watched all of The Office, Parks and Recreation, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, The Hills, and probably others that I am forgetting!
Favorite TV Show: FRIENDS!! I can quote just about every line from every episode. For fun, my sisters and I enjoy quizzing each other on FRIENDS trivia!!
Favorite vacation spot: New Found Lake in Bristol, New Hampshire. My family has been going since before I was born! We’re planning another trip in summer of 2017.
Favorite Stores to Shop (Other than Pulse!): Nordstrom, Francesca’s
Favorite sports team: St. Louis Cardinals!! I am a huge baseball fan
Biggest fear: Snakes and Michael Myers!! If I have a nightmare, it’s about one of these two things. But, it still doesn’t stop me from watching the Halloween movies.
Favorite part about working at Pulse: The creative freedom and our loyal customers!
P.S- I really want to hear more about each of you!! Reply in the comments section 🙂
