It was always Kate’s intent in college to work for a non-profit organization and impact her community in some way. After graduating from Meredith College with Bachelor’s Degree in History and International Politics, necessity led Kate to start a career in retail. She quickly advanced through the positions of operations manager, area sales manager, assistant store manager and eventually Store manager.
While her retail career gave Kate valuable experience in both leadership and client relations, her desire to contribute to the community still went unfulfilled.
After over 20 years as a retail store manager, Kate decided to follow her heart and began volunteering at the Women’s Resource Center in Alamance County, where she answered phones and provided office support. After a few months Kate was offered a position as the Community Outreach Coordinator. She works with Graphic Design, Marketing, Donor Engagement, and volunteer coordination. A short eighteen months later, Kate was promoted to her current position as Associate Director.
As a child of a creative parent, Kate enjoys spending her spare time stretching her creative legs as an amateur photographer, over-estimating DIY’er, unsuccessful backyard gardener, and budget-conscious traveler.
