Kate has a background in early education, working at a Reggio Emilia preschool in New Orleans where she fell in love with the philosophy and working with young children. Previous to that she received her BA in Art History at Florida State University.

In 2010 Kate moved to Asheville and immediately heard about the wonderful preschool program at Rainbow Community School. She fell in love with Rainbow the moment she started working in the preschool during the summer of 2011. Kate continued to work in the preschool for three years, until her first child, Eleanor Rye, was born.  She loves the child-centered curriculum and encouragement for lifelong learning that Rainbow Community School offers.

Kate now works in the front office as the Office Manager. The staff and families at the school are more connected and compassionate than any other organization she has been a part of. She is so happy to be able to support such wonderful teachers, staff, and families. When she is not at the school; she enjoys running, painting, cooking and spending time with her husband, Jonathan, and two children; Eleanor Rye and Theo.
