Meet Kate

Everything I do, I do with intention and the desire to make an impact. I care deeply about people in my life both personally and professionally - and because of that, I spend my time wisely. I do so with the intent of driving some sort of difference whether that be in someone’s day, in a project, in how someone views a challenge or even how they view their business.

In addition to making an impact, I love creating. Building something and stepping back to see a final product and then finally putting that product to use to make an impact is my ultimate goal. This way of thinking led me to build Bloom Marketing Partners. 
In this capacity, I collaborate with partners to do what I love: make a difference in organizations and hopefully in lives.
