kate provides support to Seattle Foundation’s President & CEO, helps manage day-to-day operations of the President’s Office and coordinates for the board of directors and board committees.

Kate comes to Powerful Voices after having spent the past 15 years on an around-the-world journey to share her story, build partnerships, and advocate for more fair policies and just systems. Prior to working at Powerful Voices, she worked in academia, non-profits, government, and business, all with the intention to uplift communities so their voices are included in the design, decision-making, and implementation processes. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Notre Dame and a Master's degree in public policy from Georgetown University. Originally from Ohio, she has lived on three continents and in seven cities, but she is most happy sharing a meal with friends, traveling to new places, and laughing at puns.
