Kate Woods

Kate Woods, legislative director for Congressman Doc Hastings in Washington, D.C., has accepted a position as vice president of the Northwest Horticultural Council, based in Yakima. She will start work in January after Hastings retires as representative for Washington's 4th Congressional District at the end of the legislative session.

Woods grew up on her family's farm in Centerville, and knows both the central Washington and mid-Columbia regions very well, Chris Schlect, president of the Hort Council, said. She earned a bachelor's degree in political science and print journalism in 2005 from American University in Washington D.C., and began working for Hastings as an intern in 2003.
