“Using words and narrative to birth dreams and possibilities…”
A Message from the Founder
My name is Kate E. Stephenson, and KEMPS Consulting is my brain child. Established in 2006, KEMPS Consulting is a boutique communications firm founded on the principal of personalized, one-on-one, client support and project management. We resist the mass production movement, instead offering tailored solutions and custom products to meet our clients specific needs.
It’s a cliché, but I do believe that variety is the spice of life. When I first started this venture over a decade ago, a client asked me, “Well it’s nice that you want to offer different services, but what are you going to specialize in?” The answer to his question took some time to crystallize, but it’s simple. All of KEMPS’ services share the same core–COMMUNICATION.
I have worked with businesses, corporate publishers, indie presses, individual authors, undergraduate students to postgraduate scholars, and job seekers in all stages of their careers. All share the same need to create a consistent, compelling voice that connects with and motivates an audience to some action.
KEMPS Consulting is here to help you craft a clear, powerful, engaging message.
Communication is our specialty.

Background: Kate E. Stephenson, founder
Ms. Stephenson earned a Master of Arts in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College and a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and the Arts from Vassar College. She interned at the award-winning Hudson Valley Magazine in their Advertising and Marketing department, providing a solid foundation in the business side of publishing. She was then introduced to book sales at the award-winning independent bookstore, Bunch of Grapes, Vineyard Haven, MA. After graduating with honors, she started her editorial career at the then largest book publisher in the world, Pearson Education under the tutelage of former Vice President and Publisher of Business Trade, Timothy Moore. She has since worked with a diverse clientele to support clear, captivating communications.
As a book editor and reviewer, Ms. Stephenson seeks out projects that are a little left of center, quirky writing and courageous writers who speak their souls in unexpected and indelible ways that leave the reader changed. Striving to ensure the Truth is preserved, she often encourages abandoning facts and is a strong proponent of creative license.
In all endeavors, she aspires to excellence, understanding that perfection is unattainable. She has learned that there is beauty in imperfection and purpose. To err is human, and she revels in the humanity that each project explores, highlights, educates and motivates. With every project she becomes better.
