I had the honour and the pleasure to work with and for her her in Italy, and it's been an amazing adventure. I can't think to an other person who deserves that promotion more than Kate. I always bring her smile in my soul and her professionality in my job. Thank you for being such a great person.
Ciao from Andrea, ciao from L'Aquila
