In this capacity, Cat will guide Explore St. Louis’ media relations and communications activities in collaboration with their marketing, sales and operations teams. She will serve as a spokesperson for the organization and conduct media outreach to regional and national travel, lifestyle, culinary and convention outlets.

As the co-founder of Sauce Magazine in 1999 and Feast Magazine in 2010, Cat has been a non-stop force in the St. Louis community. Highlights include developing Feast TV, an Emmy-winning regional half-hour program that ran for seven seasons; launching Emmy-nominated tasteMAKERS on public television nationally in October 2018; and joining the team at Hermann Farm in 2021 as curator to build the 200-acre historic site into a national-level farm museum and gathering place to support and promote the food, farming, and beverage industries.

“We’ve had a great working relationship with Cat over the years including jointly creating the highly successful Feast on St. Louis video series,” said Brian Hall, chief marketing officer of Explore St. Louis.  “We’re proud to welcome her to our team to help support our national brand positioning goals for St. Louis and our tourism industry.”

“I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Brian Hall and Kitty Ratcliffe over the years, and I jumped at the chance to join their team,” Cat said. “In everything that I do, I want to make a positive impact and do work that matters. Explore St. Louis plays a vital role in promoting the St. Louis area and supporting the region’s economic growth.”
