My Story

I love working with yearbook advisers to help them create the best possible yearbook. Your school's yearbook is the only recorded history of that year. It is not only historically significant; it is a memorable keepsake that I know your students will refer to for many years to come.

My customers choose to work with me because they know I am enthusiastic, responsive and I provide great support. Whether you are a new adviser, or you have been doing it for many years, I will work with you to map out a service plan that fits your needs.

With a B.S. in Journalism, eight years of graphic design experience in advertising and book design, and more than 20 years of publishing experience, I have the skills to make your yearbook experience the best it can be for your yearbook staff and for you.

What People Are Saying...

Kathryn is great! I am so lucky she was my yearbook rep my first year. I would have been lost without her. Now as I gain more experience, we are able to work together to create an even better yearbook!

When I met Kathryn, I was a brand new yearbook adviser and had no real background in it. At every point in the process, Ms. Hurley was far more than an adviser, she was a part of our team. I cannot thank her enough and would highly recommend her to any yearbook adviser.
