Kate is the partner responsible for marketing communications at Tanager having worked in corporate communications in New York, Frankfurt and London for the last 22 years.

A New Yorker by birth, Kate faced, as she puts it, “the ultimate nationality test” when in January 2016 she was diagnosed with cancer.  “A life-threatening illness makes you really think about where your home is and where you want to receive treatment.” Thanks to the excellent care she received at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, she was back on her feet and running the 2017 Los Angeles Marathon with her youngest son, Mac.

In addition to supporting the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals, Kate is active with Wellbeing for Women and the North Carolina Community Foundation.   Kate and her husband have 4 children with a grandchild on the way.
