Kate grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area before the dotcom boom, when freeways only had four lanes and some of them were still free of traffic. She received her B.A. in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara and spent her undergraduate summers working for a Boys and Girls Club camp as a counselor, a hike leader, the head lifeguard, and the assistant director of the summer program. Kate earned her master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language (MA-TESL/TEFL) from the University of Northern Arizona and spent years living overseas teaching English in the Czech Republic, Japan, Singapore, Puerto Rico, and the United Arab Emirates. In 2003, Kate packed up her traveling shoes and moved to Colorado to start a family and to enjoy the wide open spaces, fresh air, and stellar quality of life this great state has to offer. Kate first began working in the Mountain Song office during April of 2014. Though she still gets the itchy feet now and then and always misses the excitement and wonder of living in a foreign country, Kate has found that the vibrant culture of Mountain Song and the wide variety of people, personalities, and experiences that present themselves while working in the front office are surprisingly reminiscent of her overseas life.
