Kate brings more than a decade of experience in international affairs, global development, and strategic communications to The Messina Group.

Prior to joining The Messina Group, Kate served as Digital Director at NARAL Pro-Choice America, where she led the overall digital strategy and execution of online grassroots fundraising, national email acquisition and activism, multichannel advertising, digital multimedia production, website development, and daily social media programs. Under Kate’s leadership, NARAL’s membership grew from fewer than 500,000 people to more than 2.5 million, and the organization more than tripled the amount of money raised through online channels.

Kate graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology.
