Kate joined Arena in 2017 as a Co-Founder. She is currently Executive Vice President at Avalanche Strategy and has over a decade of experience in electoral politics, advocacy, and public engagement. Prior to her work at Arena, Kate was Senior Vice President and Director of Learning at 270 Strategies, where she worked with candidates, causes, and companies to build digitally sophisticated, grassroots campaigns. She has led trainings on campaign strategy, management, and organizing in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, with participants from more than 40 countries. Kate has worked seven election cycles, but credits her experience on Obama ’08 and ’12 as the most integral to her approach today. Kate holds a B.A. in Political Science from Indiana University, and lives in Oakland with her partner, Conrad, and their dog, Louie. In her free time, you’re likely to find her writing, taking in a film, hiking in the redwoods, or nerding out on behavioral science.
