Kate is an excellent marketing and communications consultant focused on strategic planning and execution. She has done marketing research work on behalf of Northeastern University, with strong results and actionable steps. She is a strategic communications expert, and has helped move our messaging and branding within graduate enrollment at Northeastern. She is personable, trustworthy and smart ― all traits that make her a joy to work on with on complex projects and initiatives. I'd highly recommend Kate and continue to work with her on several projects.

Kate has been an excellent adviser to my consulting practice on a range of communications, marketing, website and social media issues and I am quite willing to highly recommend her. Silver Tree Communications has truly helped us re-frame our business messaging to better focus the services we offer to clients and prospects. As a business owner, I find it refreshing to work with someone like Kate (and her team) who so is responsive to our needs, keeps projects on schedule and on budget, offers great creative advice, and is willing to provide options for me to consider. Kate is now a trusted partner to The Kushner Companies, LLC, and we are very happy to have been introduced to her. And you will enjoy working with her because she has a terrific sense of humor.
