Kate Glaser is a media marketing expert in the WNY region, first starting her career in television news. She spent time at both News 4 and Spectrum News Rochester + Buffalo (YNN at the time) as a live morning reporter and content producer. After many early mornings and receiving two awards for her compassionate reporting, she discovered her love for the nonprofit sector.
In 2011, she made the move to PR and Marketing, first at Make-A-Wish WNY and then Mercy Flight. Realizing her passion for transforming the lives of children with critical illnesses, she transitioned back to Make-A-Wish to help elevate the wish cause in her community. She is now Senior Manager of Brand + Communications at the world's leading wish-granting non-profit.
Kate is part of the 2015 Buffalo Business First "30 Under 30" class and she is the founder of Hope Rises News, an initiative that promotes stories of hope and love with a 50,000+ fan base. Together, with her community, she has raised more than $50,000 for nonprofits and families in need. She is a proud wife and mother of twin toddlers.
