Born and raised in rural Indiana, Kate always dreamed of joining the fast-paced world of advertising. She got her first taste of the industry in an ad class during her sophomore year of college, and later landed an internship at The Indianapolis Star designing for the Market Development department. One week following her college graduation, with degrees in Advertising, PR and News Editorial, Kate headed east to Washington, DC to work at an ad agency as a Jr. Designer. Within her first year on board, Kate picked up the title of Account Coordinator, winning over clients with her attention to details, client service and a bit of Midwestern charm. While graphic design remains her passion, Kate does enjoy the business side of the industry and has managed to balance the two effectively. In her spare time, Kate enjoys relaxing with her husband Eric, also a graphic designer.
