Meet Katharine


Katharine is a Client Care Specialist and certified Financial Paraplanner Qualified Professional (FPQP™) at AFS. She has the unenviable task of simultaneously supporting and corralling her brother, Neal.

Prior to returning to St. Louis, Kate spent eight years working for her alma mater, Georgetown University, where she built and grew professional alumni alliances on Wall Street, across Silicon Valley and Alley, and in the entertainment and media industries. Previous to running the alliances, she worked on the reunion weekend planning team and also the major gifts team. Before she was drawn to the world of alumni relations and development, Kate used her Master’s Degree in Art Business to work as an art market journalist and editorial assistant in New York and London.

Kate loves rediscovering all that St. Louis has to offer, listening to nerdy podcasts, and trying out new baking recipes.
