Employee Spotlight – Meet Kate!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I grew up in a small town in western Kansas with my mom, dad and four siblings. Being the middle of five children, I was the peacekeeper and just went with the flow of things. Growing up we spent breaks from school and time between different activities traveling. After exploring many wonderful places, I knew I wanted to move out of Kansas. In the fall of 2010, I packed my bags for Chicago to attend college at Loyola University. While there I received my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Public Relations, minoring in Marketing. I fell in love with the city and have been here ever since! Out of college I secured a position at one of the largest catering companies as an event producer. I planned, coordinated, and executed events throughout the city over five years. Throughout my career in hospitality I was able to see and experience various venues, iconic landmarks and some of the greatest food Chicago has to offer! I started with Green Ivy in September of 2020 and have loved being a part of a small team, interacting with people and being out and about in the city I love.
