A messaging maven with a background in politics and real estate development…That's Katie Kincaid, Our Director
A New York City transplant, Katie talks, moves and acts like every day is Election Day. With a diverse background in strategic communications, Katie has molded messages for major real estate developments, candidates for public office, elected officials and policy initiatives.
Behind Katie’s tireless work ethic is a commitment to providing clients with the reassurance that they are in the very best of hands. No matter what the project, Katie’s diligent research and careful analysis ensure each strategy is based on a comprehensive understanding of every issue.
Before joining Barbary Coast Consulting, Katie served as a Communications Director for a New York State Senator. As a mouthpiece for a well-respected legislator, Katie honed the skill of explaining complex political and policy issues to a variety of audiences.
Prior to her life in politics, Katie worked at a boutique real estate development firm where she oversaw the marketing campaign for a major redevelopment project and managed on site work at several properties throughout the North East.
Katie first learned the art of a carefully crafted message at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she earned a degree in Strategic Communications through the Journalism School.
While Katie’s professional life was molded in New York, don’t be fooled, she’s a Californian through and through. A Sacramento native, Katie grew up visiting San Francisco and idolizing 49er greats.
Katie realizes that at the heart of every good communications strategist is the ability to build and maintain relationships rooted in trust and respect. She’ll never do anything that wouldn’t make her family proud, and she’ll always give you everything she’s got.

A married mother of three children, aged six months to 10 years, Dorcas also operates a business. For the past five years, Dorcas has run a grocery store where the main product sold is passion fruit. With the Kiva loan, Dorcas plans to purchase more passion fruit, with the end goal of becoming a wholesaler within the next five years..
