Washington, DC (July 29, 2011) – Young, beautiful, on-the-go and in-the-the-know, Kate Michael invited her fans and friends to help celebrate five years of her online magazine, KStreetKate.

Kate’s early years in Washington were spent working in various capacities for the Federal and District Governments, including years as a staffer on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and as Program Analyst for Green Collar Jobs at the D.C. Department of Employment Services.
“The idea behind K Street Kate was to keep people in the know,” Kate said. “This is a beautiful town with a lot of exciting things going on beyond Congress.”
Her highly viewed website has on average about 5,000 unique hits from all over the world, including Japan, Germany, South Korea, Russia, France, England and Italy. “There are a lot of people who want to know what DC does after work,” said Kate.
