WBC leads Chicago's business retention, attraction, and expansion efforts and raises the city's position as a premier global business destination. As part of the initiative, which started on June 12 and runs for four months, Kate is participating in Strategy 9 under the Plan for Economic Growth and Jobs.

Kate, who is a member of the Firm's Not-for-Profit Industry Practice and also a liaison for WomenCAN: A Collaborative Advocacy Network, the Firm's national women's initiative, is following in the footsteps of Andrew Lines and Wesley Prato, CohnReznick Chicago professionals who participated in the program the past two years.

"I'm excited about this opportunity. It opens doors to meeting a lot of new people around the city," Kate says.

Kate has more than five years of experience in public accounting, providing client service in the areas of audit, review and compilation, accounting, compliance, and other accounting services. A licensed certified public accountant in the State of Illinois, Kate holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Accounting from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
