Eaze
Director of Public Affairs

Katie Kincaid currently serves as the Director of Public Affairs for Eaze, a technology platform that connects adult consumers to local, licensed cannabis retailers for on-demand delivery. In her role, Katie is focused on building a sustainable, legal cannabis industry.  Katie is responsible for educating key decision-makers on the importance of delivery in the legal cannabis marketplace in states across the US and establishing partnerships with grass tops organizations to promote safe, legal access to cannabis.

Prior to joining Eaze, Katie was on the Government Relations team at Lyft for 4.5 years, most recently serving as the Director of Political Partnerships and Engagement. During her tenure at Lyft, Katie helped build a new industry by introducing and legalizing ridesharing in cities and states across the country. She then created Lyft's political program, to proactively build relationships with decision makers at every level of government; and built out a partnerships team to establish relationships with national third-party stakeholders.

Katie got her start in government and politics in New York, where she served as the Communications Director for NY State Senator Liz Krueger.

Katie’s long standing love for cannabis is rooted in her admiration for the plant’s ability to heal and bring people together.
