Kate Sornson Named Associate Manager, Marketing, and Communications for GWS and GWI

Kate Sornson, former social media manager for Global Wellness Summit (GWS) and Global Wellness Institute (GWI), has been promoted to associate manager of marketing and communications. Prior to this appointment, Sornson worked for the Green Spa Network, a community of people focused on transforming the spa industry to be more efficient, sustainable, and earth-friendly, as community manager and membership coordinator.


Sornson formalized her love of spa and wellness as one of the first students to pursue a spa management degree at the Conrad N. Hilton College at the University of Houston. During her academic career, she also helped create the Houston Spa Association and was awarded the prestigious Mary Tabacchi Scholarship by the International Spa Association (ISPA) Foundation. Sornson was the only undergraduate student on the University of Houston’s team to take part in the 2012 Global Spa and Wellness Summit Student Challenge. 
“Kate’s experience in the spa world, as well as her social media and marketing expertise, makes her a great fit to bring messages from the Global Wellness Summit and the Global Wellness Institute to an even broader audience,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director of both the GWS and GWI. “Kate is smart, warm, energetic and very agile, and we are excited to add her expertise to our team.”
