Kate Murphy is an active member of Young Professionals in Yachting since 2014. As a Rhode Island native, she has loved boating all her life and being near the ocean. Graduating from Miami University of Ohio, with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, she moved to Boston where she worked for several years in the engineering and higher education markets. In those industries, she gained valuable marketing, account management and sales experience. While in Boston, she also received her U.S. Sailing certificate from Courageous Sailing practicing on Rhodes 19 keelboats. After taking a 9-month overseas working experience in New Zealand in 2010, Kate relocated to sunny Florida to be in warmer weather and closer to family. It is here in Florida she rekindled her love of boating and began working in the marine insurance industry at Alliance Marine Risk Managers. With her outgoing personality and strong technical understanding of marine insurance, Kate is able to assist clients in finding the right insurance coverage to meet their needs.
Along with being an active member of Young Professionals in Yachting, she is an a member of the International Yacht Brokers Association, and the Ft. Lauderdale Mariner's Club. She is also a Lead Volunteer of the Freedom Waters Foundation.
