In 2012, Kakie served as a professor-in-residence on “The Caucuses” site of the Des Moines Register during the Iowa Caucuses.
In these roles, she had the honor of editing some of the best political reporters in Kentucky and had responsibility for Washington, Frankfort and Sacramento bureau coverage for the newspapers and their Web sites.
