Katherine Hampson - UBS

So thrilled that Katherine "Katie" Hampson has decided to dance with us this year.  UBS has been a supporter of our event for many years and Katie has passionately cheered on many a colleague in their quest int the ballroom.  We're thrilled that she has decided to step up, lace on her dancing shoes, and step out on the dance floor.

Katie is currently the Market Technology Specialist for the Metro Chicago Market for UBS.  She began her career with UBS in Chicago with UBS' Corporate Cash Management Group in 2010. In this role, she supported the team's marketing and communication efforts. In May 2014, she joined the Chicago Complex management team as a Branch Office Administrator where she provided leadership for the Chicago Complex community affairs activities, as well as coordinating FA marketing and client events. In 2015, she was recognized as UBS' Global Employee Volunteer of the Year for her work facilitating employee volunteer and engagements opportunities. Most recently, she worked as a Business Development Specialist for one of our Institutional Consulting teams.

A native of Lexington, Kentucky, Katie graduated magna cum laude from DePaul University with a degree in Finance and a minor in Accounting. She enjoys Chicagoland and is involved in many local charities. In her free time, Katie enjoys travel, yoga, ballet and modern dance, running and spending time with friends and family.

Katie's passion to fight (and dance) is personal:
 "We all know someone who has experienced and felt the wrath of this terrible disease.
For me, it was both of my grandmothers and only one of them is still with us today.
I am committed to raising awareness and money to help eradicate such a devastating disease and support those who are suffering."
