Hailing from the great state of Ohio, Kate found her second home in St. Louis. (She’s moved there twice!) Kate studied music for many years before deciding to raise funds in support of more-talented artists. After a brief-stint in NYC, Kate returned to St. Louis as Director of Development for Saint Louis Fashion Fund where she also supported programming, coaching, and business development for emerging fashion entrepreneurs.
Before launching her career, Kate was a Heidelberg University Student Prince – one of the nation’s great mascots – and received her MA in Arts Administration and MBA from the University of Cincinnati.
Kate’s favorite things include libraries, volunteering with Ready Readers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and quilting (well, attempting to anyway). She is excited to work with Fellows, companies, and community members in St. Louis and Kansas City!
