Reach out to Kait

Kait Hamilton

As one of our nominated responses wrote eloquently, ‘Kait Hamilton is an incredible professional who regularly supports local causes. Her heart for others is demonstrated in her involvement with the Food Bank, She Is Beautiful 5k benefiting Girls Inc, Humane Society, CIMWI, and donations to Breast Cancer Resource Center, Down Syndrome Association of SB County, and others. She is always supporting other locals in business as well, showing up for their events, sharing about them with her community, and being a cheerleader for their success! And through her sponsorship of the SBYPC event this month, she is showing her commitment to lifting others while benefiting the Humane Society. I’m proud to be her client and would love to celebrate her winning your award!’.

Community involvement, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, and Mentorship is what Kait has shown to each of us, whether is through support for our monthly mixers, or her countless other involvements in the Santa Barbara community.
