Outside of theater, Kate enjoys spending time with her family and their beloved dog, Oliver (named after a certain Dickensian orphan, since he’s always asking for more). Kate fills much of her free time with reading and writing, and has worked as a bookseller throughout high school and college. Here are some of her favorite recent reads: Worslut by Amanda Montell, Bunny by Mona Awad, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl by Andrea Lawlor, and Big Swiss by Jen Beagin. Kate has received recognition from Princeton University, Trinity Repertory Company, and YoungArts for her writing, receiving awards for multiple one act plays she has authored. She continues to journal and write creatively when inspiration strikes.
Kate is committed to growing artistically and personally, and is excited to incorporate her identity as a queer woman along with her passion for creation into her future career.
