“Kate and I have been working together for many years. As the first communications and social media coordinator at Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, she developed the voice for the organization and a strong following on social media. I continue to call on Kate in her freelance capacity to help tell the story of our organization through marketing materials, articles, and more. She is exceptional at creating clear, interesting, and concise copy … and on deadline. Collaborating with Kate on projects is a pleasure!”

An article I wrote for the Democrat & Chronicle on behalf of a local nonprofit became the best performing sponsored story ever in terms of pageviews (as of 1/2017).

In a Corporette survey (6/2016), readers’ votes showed that the Weekly News Update, which I wrote from mid-2014 to mid-2017, was their second favorite of the blog’s regular features.
