Business Manager Kate Hoffmann.jpg

Kate Hoffmann

Some might say it was inevitable that Kate would someday find herself part of the design community. As a little girl, she often went on appointments with her mom, Jean, in the Summers or after school.  As she grew older, she worked for Chester Hoffmann & Associates during her summer and winter breaks. After spending many years in the Insurance industry, Kate realized her creative side could no longer be suppressed and found her way back to CHA. Kate’s project, client and account management skills are put to good use in her new role.

Kate received her business management degree from Providence College in Rhode Island.

During her free time, Kate is busy managing her small stationery business on Etsy. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and dog Ollie, walking around the Minneapolis Lakes and playing golf.
