Kate M. Jackson

 

Kate M. JacksonKate joined the SMC team in 2013 where she handles most of the writing and creative content for our clients, including op-eds, bylined articles, press releases, website content, case studies and social media campaigns.

For more than 25 years, Kate has served in a variety of roles as both a communications professional and journalist. She worked as a freelance writer and communications consultant for more than a decade as well as a correspondent for the Boston Globe where she wrote features on topics ranging from style and real estate to lifestyle and business. While at the Globe, she also penned a number of columns on workplace issues and psychology that were syndicated nationwide.

Kate’s work has gained accolades and awards across the industry, including a gold award from Parenting Publications of America, its highest honor, for her two-part feature on 9/11 families in Massachusetts. Her feature stories have also received top honors from the New England Press Club over the years. In a former life, Kate served as a public relations manager for high-tech firms during the dot com boom of the 1990s – a role that involved too many trips to Las Vegas. She began her career with a baptism by fire as a public information specialist at the Big Dig. 

Kate received her B.A in English from Westfield State and M.S. in Journalism from Northeastern University. She lives on the South Shore with her husband, two teenagers and a haughty french bulldog.
