A strategic thinker with a passion for big dreams and small details, Kate Leggett comes to Green Apple as a Client Relations Specialist. Her role serves Green Apple’s clients, supporting their visions and positioning them for success. Kate will work directly with our clients in collaboration with Owner and Chief Strategist, Samantha Pyle, along with the entire Green Apple team.
A Georgia native, Kate headed north to attend Northwestern University, where she graduated from the institution’s School of Communications. Following graduation, she relocated to Louisville, Kentucky, to further explore her background in theatre. Kate completed a year-long apprenticeship at the Tony Award-winning nonprofit, Actors Theatre of Louisville. It was here that she solidified her love of marketing and communications as she executed strategic campaigns for the world-renowned Humana Festival of New American Plays.
At the conclusion of her apprenticeship, Kate packed her bags and headed toward the bright lights of New York City, where she worked in entertainment marketing. Her clients ranged from the blockbuster film The Greatest Showman to the blockbuster play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. After enjoying three years in the Big Apple, Kate decided to move closer to home. She found Green Apple on the Nashville Chamber of Commerce website, and the rest is history.
Kate was drawn to Green Apple’s dedication to its clients and the positive, can-do attitude of the team. She is particularly excited to work with clients across all verticals, helping them create integrated campaigns that help them achieve their goals.
With a background in social media marketing and website project management, Kate loves all things digital. She brings a unique skill set to the team, while returning to the foundations of marketing she first fell in love with—brand development, media relations, event planning, and everything in between. She also brings a steadfast sense of optimism and a sharp sense of humor to the team. To this day, Kate’s crowning achievement is being named Calhoun High School’s Class of 2012 Most Witty Student.
Beyond Green Apple, Kate can be found trying her hand at many a biscuit recipe in her kitchen, which is about three times the size of her previous one in New York City. She looks forward to exploring Nashville, particularly Nashville’s brunch spots, with her partner-in-crime, Patrick.
And, of course, Kate’s love for theatre has not gone anywhere. She will spend many evenings enjoying a good show in one of Nashville’s many local theatres.
