Born and raised in Texas, Kate attended the University of Texas at Austin. While attending UT, she took full advantage of the distinctive offerings of the city and still managed to graduate cum laude with a Bachelor of Architecture. After a brief stay in Memphis, love and an enticing job offer drew Kate to Louisiana.
Kate strives to create architectural experiences that enhance the unique stories of the places where we live, work, and play. She contributed to the design of Heart of Louisiana Edgewood Branch in Pineville, Louisiana Tech Housing in Ruston, and Central Louisiana Technical Community College in Alexandria. Finally old enough to realize she doesn’t know everything, Kate thoroughly enjoys learning from the talented people around her. Additionally, her most challenging design problem remains how to raise her two spirited daughters into happy, compassionate adults.
In her spare time, Kate maintains her balance by creating mixed media art. She also enjoys expanding her understanding of the human condition with the dedicated study of music, movies and books (a.k.a. geeking out over pop culture).
