Kate Dickens joined S-3 after serving nearly two decades working in senior positions for leading Republicans in both the House and Senate. Most recently as chief of staff to former Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL), Dickens oversaw the Senator’s political, policy, and communications operations and helped lead bipartisan negotiations that resulted in legislative victories on trade, healthcare, and national security. Immediately prior to joining S-3, Dickens volunteered for the presidential transition operation during the 2017 Inauguration.

Dickens’ congressional experience includes serving as legislative director to Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE), a foreign and domestic policy aide to Rep. Connie Morella (R-MD), and almost a decade of experience building bipartisan coalitions as the executive director of the House Republicans’ Tuesday Group caucus.
