I knew Kathryn would be my saving grace. Her connections, her media savvy, her organization, and her quickness is an asset… she is born with incredible business skills and her recommendations for media were localized and strategic. She handled the hard stuff with ease, and when I needed last minute assistance, onsite in Chicago, she said “I got this. Tell me time and location.” And just like the fairy Godmother of Everything, she granted that wish too.
