Working with Kate and Up Public Relations has become a hand in glove experience for me, my projects and my clients. Kate seamlessly integrates into the fold regardless of the stage of production. It is as though she was there at the inception whether she is planning a social media content plan, assisting in the production of national broadcast segment or helping to build the brand and followers of an event and/or organization. I look forward to every facet of work that we do together because even when we need to change course in a project because of time sensitivity it presents a whole new menu of opportunities when you’re working with Up and Kate. Her capacity to juggle and react to real time circumstances is second to none.

Kate is a sponge and thrives on learning from others and from doing. She dives right in and understands what is needed quickly to get the job done right. Her finely tuned and expertly honed social media skills have helped her clients build awareness by engaging with audiences and being the voice behind the brand. She is laser-focused and passionate about the kind of work and clients she wants to work with. In a short time she has built a solid network and a very impressive client roster. Her willingness and enthusiasm in taking anything on, even the most mammoth of undertakings, is refreshing. She continues to impress me with her sound judgment, insight and commitment to building something bigger than herself.
