Kate has been a dear friend and an incredible mentor over the many years
we've now known each other.  I will miss her at HOT but I'm so excited for
her new opportunity!
Working with Kate has been incredible.  I've learned so much about
leadership and dedication, and I hope to carry on her calm, kind demeanor
into my own work with HOT.
Thank you for all of your hard, dedicated work Kate!  You've help guide and
build HOT into an incredible organization and I couldn't be more proud to
work for such an entity.
All my best wishes,
