Kate spent over a decade working with medium to large manufacturing companies, using engineering and quality management tools to reduce costs and solve product problems. In 2013 she founded Meliora Cleaning Products, a soap-based cleaning products company. She scaled up product manufacturing to keep pace with tripling sales year over year, and now manages operations at the Chicago soap factory which makes half a million dollars in product per year with only 2 dedicated production employees. She maintains a Six Sigma Black Belt certification from ASQ and strives to use her manufacturing knowledge to help artisan makers create better products with fewer resources.
