Kate was born and raised in Salinas, and has had a love for animals since she can remember. She began working at a veterinary hospital right out of high school. After a few years there, she left to pursue a career in accounting and attend college. After working for almost nine years in the accounting field, Kate was offered an opportunity to work with animals again at Steinbeck, and she could not say no!
Kate enjoys spending time with her husband and children, traveling and running.
