Hedgeman Featured as "Inspiration" in HERLIFE Magazine

Kate HedgemanWhile her list of academic and professional honors, accomplishments, accolades and distinguished achievements, stacked one upon the other, could reach tremendous heights, it is her gentle humility paired with a curious intellect and passion for community that truly endears others to Catherine “Kate” Hedgeman, Attorney at Law. She is a woman who lives with purpose and on purpose, fully aware of her path in life, yet she remains open to whatever doors in life invite her to cross their threshold, bearing new ideas, challenges and initiatives. When opportunity knocks, Kate never complains about the noise.

Of course, there is a lot of noise going on in Kate’s life these days. However, it’s not the type of noise one would usually expect to surround a tenacious and driven lawyer with a passion for serving others. No, the noise that surrounds Kate today consists of the early morning cries or the afternoon coos of her newborn son, Brendan, who came into Kate’s world on August 20, 2012.

A Capital Region young professionals' group wants to raise $100,000 for charity. The Stakeholders, as the group is called, says its "Young Philanthropists" effort will involve convincing at least 500 young professionals to donate $100 to the cause. It then will challenge area baby boomers to match the effort. Catherine Hedgeman, president and CEO of The Stakeholders, described early reaction to the fundraising effort as enthusiastic. Already, she said, the campaign has received pledges of support, leaving her confident the group can meet its $100,000 goal. [read full story from Albany Business Review and from the Times Union]
