Kate Bryant

Vice President

A native of Connecticut and what also seems like Vermont given all the time she spent there skiing growing up. Shameless plug, Go Mad River Glen! : )

First and foremost an accomplished human and mother, but also an accomplished chef having once personally prepared a meal for none other than Julia Child and Jacques Pépin; they in fact came in town (Chicago) for expressly this purpose.

Also, a lover of the great outdoors, the natural world in all its forms really, and of course our National Parks.

Kate’s work at the foundation is done in honor of her sister Jen, or Apple as she was also known, as one of so many different ways in which the light from Apple’s candle still burns bright.
