Staff Academy Program Specialist
Kathleen Siegmund joined NDTC in 2019 and is currently a Program Specialist for the Staff Academy program. In her role, Kathleen supports cohort members of the communications track throughout the ten weeks of the program and beyond to learn the skills needed to work on Democratic campaigns as leaders and comms staffers. While working to earn her degree in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Kathleen got her start in politics in her hometown of St. Louis by working for former Senator Claire McCaskill’s campaign and later worked for the Missouri Democratic Coordinated Campaign in 2018. Outside of work, you can usually find Kathleen closely following the WTA and ATP tennis tours, watching any and every movie she can, or drinking some cold brew on a nice, long walk.
