Katie brings well over a decade of government affairs and lobbying experience to our team and her role as our Public Policy Director. She has managed campaign strategy and fundraising for campaigns on both the state and federal levels, branded and re-branded clients at the Colorado State Capitol, advised on long-term political and legislative strategy, and developed political giving entities and plans.
After graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder, Katie began her career in politics as a Legislative Aide, staffer to the Majority Caucus in 2006 and eventual full-time lobbyist and Senior Associate with Michael Best Strategies and Mendez Consulting. Working with these firms over eight years honed Katie’s policy expertise, highly-regarded skills in legislative strategy and negotiation, and built her reputation as a trusted resource for her clients and legislators alike.
Over the past decade, Katie has established herself as a well-respected, bi-partisan lobbyist and has earned the admiration of her colleagues and Colorado’s legislators as an honest broker and hard worker. In her free time, she enjoys camping, karaoke, and watching football.
