Kate Richards has been managing the membership sales department at the Downtown Denver Partnership for three years. Before this role, she was at the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce as their Membership Director. Kate is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, having studied public relations, event planning and tourism.
Kate and her husband Nick have lived in Colorado for nine years this August. She and her husband recently welcomed their first child, Benjamin, in July and they are celebrating their 9-year wedding anniversary next week.
In their free time (which is little these days), they enjoy snowshoeing and hiking (they have tackled fifteen 14ers so far!) and have been known to brew a few batches of beer for friends and family to enjoy.
Kate is excited to join Rotary 31 and is personally tied to the cause, her Aunt Sally was one of the last recorded cases of polio in the state of Iowa. She has a deep respect for our work and is eager to get involved.
