She is the only woman in the country running the operations of all three entities and has been doing so for more than a dozen years.

      Kitty is a past international Chairwoman of Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the largest global association of meeting professionals, and is a recipient of their International Supplier of the Year Award. She serves on the board of the Professional Convention Management Association and has co-chaired PCMA's annual convention, Convening Leaders, the annual gathering focused on education for the business events industry. She has received the Destinations International's Leadership in Environmentally Responsible Tourism award and in 2019 was inducted into their Hall of Fame for significant contributions to tourism and shaping the future of destination marketing.

      In 2018 she received the Apex Award from Black Meetings & Tourism, and has been named as one of the Most Influential Businesswomen in St. Louis by the St. Louis Business Journal, as well as a Leader of Distinction by the YWCA of Metro St. Louis, a Regional Leadership Award from the St. Louis Community Empowerment Foundation and an Athena Award from the Hellenic Spirit Foundation.
