Kate Grannemann is a Senior Technical Assistance Specialist at AnLar, providing management and content expertise on projects related to early childhood and education. Like the young children she works to serve, Kate asks a lot of questions and loves to learn.
Before joining AnLar, Kate leveraged her experience working at a state agency to provide technical assistance to various audiences, including maternal & child health leaders, state education agencies, and Head Start grantees. Her interest and experience focus on the integration and use of early childhood data, the use of research to inform policies and practices, and the improvement of services for children with disabilities. She has worked on several large national TA projects and across numerous states, developing resources and leading TA efforts. Kate is also dedicated to supporting children and families in her community by volunteering at various community organizations providing resources and supports to families in need. She received a B.A. in Social Thought & Political Economy and a B.A. in French & Francophone Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and earned her master’s degree in Public Affairs from the La Follette School at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
When she’s not working, you can find Kate engaging in community efforts to prevent gender-based violence, advocating for affordable, accessible, high-quality child care, harvesting oysters, snuggling her rescue dog Osa, or fueling the aforementioned activities with a large cup (read: entire pot) of coffee.
