Kat Barrett is the President and Associate Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Online Media and Education Network (W.O.M.E.N.), including WomensRadio, WomensCalendar and AudioAcrobat®.

Kat works with W.O.M.E.N.’s highly skilled technical team to maximize user capabilities for all of their vertical websites and services. She ensures that the employees at W.O.M.E.N. are able to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction in an upbeat professional environment while building successful and long lasting relationships.  Kat also coordinates all HR and legal matters with her executives, and has over eight years of HR experience.

Prior to working with W.O.M.E.N., Kat spent nearly four years arranging virtual trainings for thousands of national For and Non-profits and their employees in order for them to comply with various state and federal laws, including sexual harassment training, codes of conduct training, interviewing/hiring/firing training and more.

Kat also spent a year as a sales associate for a vegan baking company where she quickly increased sales from $150,000 per month to close to $500,000 per month, and she spent another year working in print advertising, design and layout. Her ad designs have been used in national campaigns for General Motors, Coors and the Superbowl.

After accepting her admittance to the University of California, Berkeley, Kat was awarded the Regents Scholarship–one of the highest scholarships granted within the University of California system by The Regents of the University of California, as well as the Alumni Scholarship from UC Berkeley.  During college, she worked as a Teacher’s Aid for the Chair of the English Department and for several national and global Non-profit organizations, including the Mother Mary Ann Wright Foundation, CARE and PETA.

Kat graduated from the University of California, Berkeley summa cum laude and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications.  She is currently obtaining her SPHR from the HR Certification Institute (HRCI).

Outside of W.O.M.E.N., Kat is a photo collage, acrylic painter and her work has been featured in local galleries in California and Nevada.

Kat also loves cooking allergy-friendly foods, as she is passionate about healthy living, and has been interviewed about her experiences with food allergies and allergy-friendly cooking. Almost 5 years ago, she experienced severe health issues and one of the symptoms she developed were food allergies. Her allergies to certain foods, such as eggs, cow’s dairy, tree nuts and much more, inhibited her from enjoying her life to such a great degree that she was forced not only to change her lifestyle but also, what she was eating.
