“Since 1988, Campaigns & Elections has recognized the best young operatives in the campaign business with the coveted Rising Star award. It's one of the most prestigious honors in the campaign world for a reason: industry giants are counted among the ranks of former Rising Stars.
Rising Star recipients have climbed to the heights of politics, launching dozens of successful consulting firms and serving at the highest levels of state and federal campaigns.”
Kate was honored to be included among some of the best young political professionals of 2018.
