Kate Grannemann is a Project Manager & 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 and the use of research to inform policies and practices. She has worked on several large national TA projects, developing resources and leading TA efforts. Kate is also dedicated to supporting children and families in her community. She volunteers weekly assisting clients at a diaper bank and working with children at a homeless shelter. Kate applies her professional experience in early childhood by serving on her local Head Start policy council. 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, harvesting oysters on Cape Cod (where she lives), snuggling her rescue pit bull Osa, or fueling the aforementioned activities with a large cup (read: entire pot) of coffee.
