Kit spent most of her career as an editor helping reporters translate complicated issues. Today she enjoys helping a wide range of businesses and individuals do the same thing. And because she knows what journalists are looking for, she gets a particular thrill when she can connect a client with a reporter to the benefit of both of them.
“Our clients are smart people with their own areas of expertise, and it’s rewarding to help them find ways to raise their profiles,” she says.
Based in Houston, Kit closely follows developments in the oil and gas industry that might affect Androvett’s many energy-focused clients. She proactively works with those clients to help them communicate their insights to the audiences they’re trying to reach.
“Communicating clearly is a challenge for every profession. My job is to make that easier.”
Kit began her career as a reporter for newspapers and the Associated Press covering government, politics, and business. At AP, she became Texas news editor and later took on the same role for the Houston Chronicle. She uprooted her family for a move to New York where she became the news agency’s first Health and Science Editor at a time when news was rapidly moving from print to online.
After 12 years of winter and Metro North commuting, she and her husband knew it was time to return to Texas, and she joined Androvett. “I’m doing work now that uses so many of the skills I learned in the news business, and like the news, the issues and landscape are constantly changing,” she says.
