In a fundraising industry increasingly influenced by technology, speed and greed, we were founded in the belief that the political is personal. We have contemplated the lesson, “If we are only for ourselves, who are we? And if not now, when?” and strive to give back now, more than ever.
Kay Cook Consulting is a female-led firm that is proud to work with partners who support equal rights, equal pay, and free and fair elections.
Meet Kay Cook.
Kalynn “Kay” Cook is the President and Founder of Kay Cook Consulting LLC. She has worked on 30+ political campaigns in Florida, raising more than $3 million for progressive candidates up and down the ballot since 2014.
Kay cut her teeth with Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, developing a passion for advocacy and community organizing. After working tirelessly in Downtown Miami to re-elect the president, she joined Planned Parenthood in helping launch his administration’s signature achievement: the Affordable Care Act.
Before founding Kay Cook Consulting, Kay served as Vice President for EDGE Communications, one of Florida’s top political and bilingual communications consulting firms. At EDGE, she handled a diverse portfolio, mentoring over a dozen candidates and assisting clients with fundraising, budgeting, communications, team building, data targeting, and political outreach. During her time at EDGE, Kay had the privilege to learn under the mentorship of Christian Ulvert and to work with many incredible public servants including State Senator Annette Taddeo, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Eileen Higgins, Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber and dozens more.
At age 30, Kay launched Kay Cook Consulting LLC, a boutique firm dedicated to amplifying the impact of leaders, advocates and changemakers by providing premier fundraising consulting services. When she’s not working hard to support democratic leadership, she enjoys exploring local eateries and going to the beach with her husband Ezra and dog Pelé.
