Senior Account Executive
Kate Laursen joins Pace PR with nearly a decade of communications experience spanning private companies and non-profit organizations. She began her career in the ever-evolving renewable energy sector implementing and eventually leading public relations strategies and content marketing for multiple companies, where she successfully used PR to sway legal and regulatory rulings in favor of the industry and drove consumer demand.
During this time, she also served as a board member for Women In Sustainable Energy (WISE), a non-profit group which supported women in the sector through networking, professional learning opportunities, and mentorship. From 2017 to 2019, Kate fulfilled a lifelong dream and served in the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone, West Africa. When her Peace Corps service ended, her time in Sierra Leone did not, and Kate stayed in the country and worked for a non-governmental organization.
Using her strategic, visionary, and creative skills, Kate launched a communications department for the organization, trained and managed a team, led a strategic rebrand, and collaborated with industry partners to further the organization’s mission and reach. Kate is thrilled to bring her range of experiences and expertise to further her clients’ PR goals.
