Kate founded Milk Stork after facing the logistical challenges of pumping for her twins during a four-day business trip. After lugging two gallons of breast milk home from the trip, she decided to create a simple solution to this complex problem. She contacted her father, Mike Torgersen, with her idea, and together they created Milk Stork, the first breast milk shipping company. Since then Kate has made it her mission to normalize pumping and motherhood in the workplace by educating companies on the needs of working parents and by encouraging working moms to ask their employers for the tools and services they need to be successful - both at work and at home.
