Kate is a native of Canterbury, NH and spends her professional time “singing the praises” of the Granite State as President & CEO of Stay Work Play NH, an organization focused on the recruitment and retention of 20 and 30 something. Kate is also an adjunct faculty member at the University of NH in the business department and is passionate about giving back to and being involved in the community. In addition to Brew NH, she is on number boards of directors, advisory boards, volunteers throughout the state often, and was appointed by Governor John Lynch to the Job Training Fund.
She has also been a participant in five regional leadership programs in NH and holds a Masters in Business (MBA) with a certificate in Leadership of Non-Profit Organizations from Southern New Hampshire University, and a Bachelors of Arts (BA) in Business with a concentration in Sustainable Business from the University of New Hampshire.
When naming her one of the “5 Leaders for the Future” in 2014, Business NH Magazine created a caricature of Kate for publishing in the magazine and told her they’re only able to do that for someone if they are an “easily recognizable person,” which she found to be a unique and super cool honor.
In her free time Kate enjoys staying active with her black lab, Timber, kayaking, cooking, being outdoors working her green thumb, music, exploring NH and beyond – including breweries and cupcake shops.
