As the lead on the public policy portfolio at PR Collaborative, I work with our clients at the intersection of policy, press, and communications. The public policy portfolio comprises public health and health care policy, food and agriculture issues, conservation, and environmental advocacy as well as nonfiction book publications.
Prior to joining the PR Collaborative, I ran my own company, Kate Reuterswärd Consulting, which provided consulting and PR services in Sweden and the United States, including the Embassy of Sweden (DC), the Swedish Institute (Stockholm), and Malmö University. My company built on my experience as a business consultant in Malmö (Sweden) and as a writer for the Swedish Institute, which is the PR and outreach agency for the government of Sweden.
I'm on the Executive Board of DC EcoWomen, an organization that seeks to connect and empower women environmentalists in the DC Metro area. I'm also a member of the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce.
I have a deep love for travel and have had the opportunity to live and work abroad in Sweden, Austria, and Italy. I am fluent in Swedish and am mostly conversational in Italian, can read in Spanish, and can probably still order a beer and some fries in German. I enjoy cooking, long walks, and spending time with my friends, family, and husband.
