Kate is new to the planning world and is excited to bring her expertise in customer service and passion for the outdoors into her professional life. She has seen the power outdoor recreation and public spaces have on a community’s quality of life and wants to bring that joy and connectivity to more areas.  Kate has a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Castleton University.

Outside the Office

As a born and raised Vermonter, you can find Kate riding flowy singletrack on her mountain bike, running up mountains, or exploring the backcountry on her splitboard. Wherever you find her, you can be sure she has a smile on her face and snacks in her pocket. When she’s not chasing Strava leaderboards, you can most likely find her reading, crafting, watching sports, or generally dilly dallying.
