Friendly Encounters

This is a series dedicated to my friends meeting celebs.

I have featured my friend and Global Traveler Publisher Fran Gallagher many times here. Today, I am featuring Fran's eldest daughter, Kate. What can I say about Kate? Well, for one, she's not Fran! That's a good thing. For another, she has survived growing up with him. That's not only good, it's sort of surprising. Oh I am just kidding (mostly). Fran is a great guy and longtime friend.
I had met Kate several times over the years, but got to know her a bit better when she joined the GT staff last year.
I know Kate has done more important things, but her work with the company newsletter is outstanding. Being in charge of any company newsletter is a less-than-thankless task. Kate handles it smoothly and gets it done successfully.
In January at GT's annual awards event, Kate was busy handling (and juggling) many responsibilities, but she always had time to find humor in something. It was a real pleasure working with her.
