Kate Sornson has been named associate manager – marketing and communications – for the Global Wellness Summit (GWS) and the Global Wellness Institute (GWI).

Prior to the appointment, Sornson managed social media for both the GWS and GWI, and worked as community manager and membership coordinator for the Green Spa Network, an organisation designed to help the industry be more efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Sornson was one of the first students to pursue a spa management degree at the Conrad N Hilton College at the University of Houston.

During her academic career, she also helped create the Houston Spa Association and was awarded the Mary Tabacchi Scholarship by the ISPA Foundation.

As an undergraduate, Sornson represented the University of Houston in the 2012 Global Spa & Wellness Summit Student Challenge.

“Kate’s experience in the spa world, as well as her social media and marketing expertise, makes her a great fit to bring messages from the Global Wellness Summit and the Global Wellness Institute to an even broader audience,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director of both the GWS and GWI.

“Kate is smart, warm, energetic and very agile, and we're excited to add her expertise to our team.”
