Kate was born and raised in Hillsboro, Oregon. She graduated from Goucher College in Baltimore with a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Music Performance and Non-Profit Arts Administration. It was there she met and fell in love with her future spouse Eliot after hearing him play the Uilleann pipes. They got married at 7,000 feet on Mt. Hood in Oregon before moving to Ireland for Eliot's master's degree and finally to Eugene for his PhD, where they found a church home at Cove Church.
As Communications Director, Kate loves helping connect people to Jesus, the church, and one another. Her goal is to encourage daily spiritual practice via all methods of communication, including social media, email, and our website. She also enjoys the graphics, video, and motion design aspects of communications as she gets to be creative!
Kate is a mom to three amazing homeschooled kids, but in her spare time, she is a Disney blogger who enjoys writing about why Disney has personal and social value. Her favorite Disney moments include dole whips, churros, and golden hour at the castle with her Nikon z50.
