Kate has served as the Public Relations Manager at the Reves Center for International Studies since October 2014. Before that she was the Communications Specialist for the City of Williamsburg, where she focused on civic engagement, open government and community relations in addition to tourism marketing and media relations. Williamsburg was a pioneer in local government in using social media and technology in citizen engagement and performance management.
Before moving to Williamsburg, Kate spent 15 years in Washington, D.C., in public affairs, lobbying and strategic communications. She represented a wide variety of clients and issues, including higher education, independent filmmakers and copyright protection, tort reform, Soviet-American cooperative efforts and non-profit arts organizations. One of her favorite experiences was as videographer traveling to Egypt and Argentina with dance troupes from Gallaudet University, to promote educational opportunities for the hearing impaired.
Kate received a B.A. with Honors in History from Smith College and is still hoping to meet a cellist with whom she can play the Rachmaninov Cello Sonata..
