Trailblazing has always been a passion for Kathleen. Twenty-five years ago she was a pioneer in integrated communications. Then she became an early adopter of strategic planning.
Today, she’s pushing the limits of digitally powered solutions and campaign analytics methodologies.
A high-voltage professional who's known for stretching her teams out of their comfort zones and adapting instantly to changing consumer expectations, Kathleen heads up CE’s work for USAA, Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, Carolinas Healthcare System and the U.S. Navy — an account she has led through more than 130 continuous months of recruiting success, a record in the era of the all-volunteer military force.
Her campaign leadership has been recognized with an ARF David Ogilvy Award, an EFFIE Award and an AAF Mosaic Award.
And when she’s not trailblazing in the ad industry, you’ll probably find her charting new territory on a hike… or on her motorcycle.
