Katlyn Svendsen

Katlyn Svendsen, Global Media & Public Relations Director, has worked for Travel South Dakota since 2011. She takes a proactive approach working with the local, regional, national and international media to share news about South Dakota to inspire travel to the state. Her personal mission is to story tell in a way that evokes a feeling of wanderlust. She resides in Pierre with her husband and stays busy raising two very active and talented girls.

She enjoys taking the road less traveled, boating on Lake Oahe, ATV trail riding in the Black Hills, motorcycle adventures, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and DIY projects on their acreage outside of Pierre. Generally, put her in the outdoors and she’s all in.
