At Catalyst, Lohmann has been a key player in helping emerging and disruptive industries take on the status quo.
With her work on accounts like Uber, Lohmann has advocated for more transportation options for Missourians and more work opportunities for drivers at the push of a button on their smartphone.
A fan of live music, she has been a force behind efforts to ensure music fans have more options for good seats at face value with her work on behalf of Live Nation to help stop scalpers from using electronic bots to purchase large numbers of tickets to sell at prices that are cost-prohibitive for many fans.
Lohmann’s passion for impacting public policy began with her sister’s struggles with epilepsy. When she saw the obstacles and limited options for medical treatment, specifically the Missouri ban on CBD Hemp Oil, which has been effective in treating the disease, she wanted to become an advocate for people like her sister.
