About Kate

Hi! I’m Kate and I am a teacher of English as a Foreign Language. My experience as an exchange student in Germany when I was a teenager led me to love languages and connect with people from different cultures. 

Over the years, I’ve studied German, French, Spanish, and Polish. I believe that understanding something of the language helps me to understand the people who speak it.

I also value life-changing communication. My career path has allowed me to continually practice in the roles of educator, conflict resolution mediator, health coach, and librarian. I also seek to use my skills in my personal life as a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, and community volunteer.

My passion is to engage people in worthwhile conversations about things that matter.
