Her clients are mostly non-profits, and Kat says that is preferred.“I work exclusively with people, companies, and organizations operating ethically and for the greater good.” - Kat DuesterhausKat became the first social media reporter for the Treasure Coast area, hired by Gannett (USA Today) to cover ArtsFest 2016 for Luminaries Magazine’s Facebook Page. Her unusual interview with celebrity Jazz Flutist Nestor Torres kept true to her personality — it included a discussion about Nichiren Buddhism and chanting “nam-myoho-renge-kyo” with Torres.Kat continued to broadcast LIVE on Facebook as a freelance reporter after Luminaries Magazine discontinued the use of paid reporters. In 2016, Kat provided social media coverage for Molly’s House Polo Classic, the Elliott Museum’s Classics at the Beach car show, and the Stuart Sailfish Regatta.On August 8th, 2016, Kat published “Gifts From My Anonymous Stalker” — a video about her experience in 2015 as a victim of stalking, how she uncovered the perpetrator’s identity, and giving 5 tips for current victims. The video sparked a whole series of additional videos on topics such as finding peace after trauma, personal safety, and empowering people to change the statics on sexual violence.Beside being Co-Owner and Journalist for TreasureCoast.com and @TreasureCoast on Facebook, Kat is an entrepreneur and an activist. She is proud to volunteer as a Survivor and Advocate for the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) in Palm Beach County and serves as a board member and as Secretary for the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) for Martin County.
