When asked why she works in higher education, Kate said "I have been interested in working in higher education ever since I graduated from KU in 2012. I had an amazing college experience and I look forward to helping others achieve their educational goals while simultaneously enjoying their experience. My mom always told me that “the one thing that can never be taken away from you is your education.” That has always stuck with me and gave me a strong appreciation for the value that an education brings to one’s life."
In her leisure time, Kate spends a lot of time with her 1 ½ year old dog named Larry…their favorite activity is cuddling on the couch while watching a movie and he barks out the window at their neighbors! Kate enjoys cooking for her friends and family. She is a huge St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas Jayhawks fan!
