About

Have you ever felt like your career isn’t getting off the ground? Uncertain about your next step in life? Intimidated about making a presentation or nailing the perfect job interview?

Hi! I’m Kait and I’ve been there. I want to use my experience as a journalist and public speaker to find a solution to help you put your best foot forward.

A bit about me:

An award winning journalist, I am a reporter at POLITICO Europe, where I cover the politics and policy of the EU. From Donald Trump’s first NATO summit and to Europe’s migrant crisis in 2015, I have covered some of the biggest political stories of the past several years.

Prior to my current gig, I worked as a reporter and editor for five years as a staffer and freelancer. My work has been published by Al-Jazeera English, BBC, The Guardian, NPR, VICE and Deutsche Welle.

My investigation into water pollution in southern China for The Guardian won a silver medal in environmental reporting from the UN Correspondents’ Association in 2017. My coverage of Down Syndrome received an award for science reporting from the World Health Summit and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting in 2016. I have also held four media fellowships, including with the International Women’s Media Foundation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

I am also a public speaker, panel moderator and occasional talking head. I have spoken at conferences on topics like journalism, immigration and politics in the US, Canada, Europe and China for clients such as the European Commission, Lewis & Clark College and the Fritt Ord Foundation.
