Who is Kate Elliott?

Kate Elliott moved to Washington State in 2010 to fulfill her childhood dream of living in this beautiful state and to pursue her career in communications and public involvement. Armed with a planning degree and experience leading communications and public involvement on some of the most controversial transportation infrastructure projects in the state, Kate is a great fit for MFA as she continues to explore, learn, and share her skills across MFA’s many integrated disciplines and with her clients. Kate is the type who sees gaps and fills them. She is the kind of project manager who anticipates issues and addresses them quickly. She is organized, thoughtful, and meticulous. For her clients and project teams, Kate keeps all the balls rolling on time and under budget.

Kate is a woodswoman at heart. She’s often out exploring in the mountains, procuring her own dinner from the rivers and beaches, and picking up sticks and bucking up logs for an evening fire.
