“Kate is a passionate leader who successfully connects with the families that we serve, our board of directors, and the community members and funders that make our existence possible. I appreciate her ability to share our vision and values through careful written communication, be it a simple thank you letter or an involved grant application. She is dedicated to the details and an asset to our organization.” 

Patrick Doyle, President of the Board

The Kolbe Fund

"Kate came to House of Mercy at a time of change and incredible growth. She was a godsend. Two of her greatest strengths are her initiative and adaptability. She is truly talented and,
most of all, committed."

Edward Hourihan, President of the Board
House of Mercy

“Before working with Kate, The Margaret Home was writing grants and seeking funding in an effective, but somewhat inefficient fashion. After being introduced to Kate, we moved to a more efficient path. Kate was dedicated to working with us and getting to know the mission, the people involved, and the donors who support us. Her professional and personal approach streamlined our language, allowing for more effective grant writing and donor engagement. Kate's strategies set up The Margaret Home for success!”

Paula Belemjian, Executive Director
The Margaret Home


"Kate is the best fundraiser and grant writer I’ve worked with in recent years.  She strikes that elusive balance of cementing the emotional connection to a cause while communicating data that assures potential donors of an organization’s fidelity to its work.  Her enthusiasm and energy are infectious, making it a pleasure to work with her."

Christopher Dowdell, Executive Director

Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund

“In my role as a board member for one of the largest non-profit institutions in Pennsylvania, I have rarely come across someone that is so dedicated and focused on achieving goals that have wide impact on our community. Kate is a key member of our cycling team that raises money for cancer research. She consistently acts as a catalyst to provide cohesion among our team members. Her warmth and generosity quickly generate a feeling of togetherness and she has helped our institution thrive.”

Dr. Lalitha Trivikram, Board Member
Team CMMD Foundation

“Kate was instrumental in making our Giving Tuesday campaign a success! She’s got great ideas and knows how to execute them! From brainstorming about the campaign and creating social media content, to becoming one of our biggest cheerleaders (and participant!). Our cycling team wouldn’t have raised nearly the amount of money we did with out her on our side.”

Jill Maki, Founder
Road Warriors Cycling Club
