Kate Monroe is a retired United States Marine, veteran activist, multi-business owner, startup specialist, published author, decorated sales trainer for multiple industries, and just announced her run for Congress. Kate’s ventures stem from her passion for creating a positive impact for the disenfranchised. She is the founder of VetComm, a disabled veteran empowerment company, and House The Heroes, a nonprofit organization providing aid for homeless disabled veterans. Kate first began her political journey locally as she worked with community leaders, oftentimes appearing on Fox News to discuss ways of solving disabled veterans and homeless issues.
Her involvement in politics had led to her drafting and introducing multiple examples of innovative congressional legislation, regarding multiple issues she sees within our society. Her first bill was recently introduced. Additionally, Kate’s intellect and strategic mind have been lauded and sought by multiple top-tier GOP Senators.
As her star grew brighter, she was plagued with self-doubt. Despite the many notches in her belt, Kate believed becoming a member of Congress was never to be one of them; however, with the encouragement of multiple veterans and church and community leaders, she answered the “call to duty,” sacrificing her business ventures and doing her duty as a U.S. citizen to help save the country. As Jason Gilbert, National Chairman of the Disabled Veterans PAC, states, “If Kate can have this much impact in her community AND in Congress as a private citizen, imagine what she can do once elected to office!”
Through the Ben Free Project, Kate plans to bring her curriculum into prisons, helping incarcerated veterans and others plagued by PTSD and anxiety issues.
