Kate is originally from Australia and moved to the US in 2012 with her husband. They fell in love with their new home city – Chicago – as well as the US, and plan to stay in the US indefinitely.
Kate’s background is solely within professional services firms, initially as a practicing attorney for seven years, and then as a search and recruiting professional for six years.
Kate's a Principal at KHS People LLC, a search firm that finds the right BD, marketing and sales people for its clients, which are professional services firms. This includes law firms, accounting firms, engineering firms, and architecture firms.
A believer in pushing yourself each and every day to achieve things you didn’t realize possible, Kate takes this personal mission with her into each day. She does this through the lens of being positive, tenacious and empathetic. She uses the skills she has acquired both as an attorney and as an avid “people observer” in the search business to understand the needs of her clients and candidates. Both clients and candidates work with Kate because of her deep understanding of the market and her ability to relate based on her attorney and search experience combined.
Kate works virtually from Chicago and works all across the US. Her prior experience includes assignments in all of Australia, Asia, the UK and the US.
