Kathryn Knipe

Assistant to Mike Kish

What is your favorite part about your role?

Meeting clients for the first time. Especially, seeing their faces for the first time during practice Zoom meetings. We work so hard to get video and audio and then it’s there! Feels like winning a gold medal every time.

What does financial success look like to you?

Freedom and peace. Also, I envision lots of green and many plants.

If you could meet any person or character, who would you want to meet?

George Washington would be my answer if I have to pick a conversation with just one person. Otherwise, any world leader or musician or artist at the top of their field.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A gymnast, a chef and a fighter pilot - none of these are realistic, but that's what I dreamed.

What's your favorite hobby?

I like to draft clothing patterns and sew clothes.
