As the Council’s HR Manager, Kate handles all aspects of Human Resources including: benefits, payroll, company events, onboarding, the intern program, and office management. Prior to joining the Council, Kate began her Human Resources career at an international law firm in DuPont Circle as the HR Assistant. In this role, Kate supported the CHRO and worked closely with the benefits and recruiting teams. Kate assisted with launching the company's "Retirement Readiness" campaign to encourage employees to be passionate about investing in their future. She was also instrumental in the design of their new staff recruiting software.
Kate grew up in Connecticut but came down to Virginia to attend the University of Mary Washington and escape the brutal northeast winters. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she moved to the D.C. area to experience the exciting city life and start her career. She recently went back to school and completed her master's degree in Human Resource Management from Marymount University. Kate adores her rescue pup, Mason, and enjoys hiking and doing all things outdoors with him. She is also a born and raised New York Jets fan, so you can catch her watching the painful games on Sundays.
You should contact Kate with any questions regarding Human Resources or day to day office operations at the Council.
