Favorite memory must be the “Day on the Hill” AAPL hosted in 2019 at Capitol Hill in DC. Kat was so excited and worked so hard to set up an entire morning of meetings with key legislator’s staff. She took the lead in getting everyone organized so that we were on time and in the correct building. Kat has a passion when it comes to AAPL’s legislative efforts, so this was like a trip to the North Pole for her all the while taking charge of a large group that is not so easy to handle.
