After attending Baylor University, Kate was a high school English teacher for 6 years before working for Young Life ministries. Upon moving back to Fort Worth in 2012, Kate joined the Kids Hope USA team where she worked for 3 years as a Program Support Coordinator. She was excited have the opportunity to rejoin the team in April of 2018 as Kids Hope USA provided Kate an opportunity to combine two of her passions- education and ministry to at-risk students.
Kate and her husband Michael have 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, who keep them pretty busy. Together, they all strive to live out their family motto- “Stand on Truth, Walk in Grace”. When they are not shuttling around between activities, she and her family love spending time at their Ranch working cattle and hunting.
