She is a Certified Financial Planner® and spent 19 years as a fiduciary specialist helping individuals and families define their personal and financial goals. She delights in talking with KUOW listeners who want to leave a legacy to keep KUOW’s fact-based, local journalism a community treasure for future generations. She aids listeners in exploring how best to name KUOW in their estate plan given their unique circumstances, examining options together, such as leaving a gift in their will, trust, IRA, retirement plan, Charitable Gift Annuity and more. Please reach out to Kate to explore your options.
