She had many solo opportunities throughout her schooling.

She completed her Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance at Converse College in 2010, and was invited to become a member of the Rho chapter in the Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society.

She is currently an active member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and participates in adjudications while her students participate in the vocal auditions. 

Kate began singing with her family around the dinner table when she was a little girl. As a teenager, she toured with her family and sang in multiple countries around the world where her passion for music and singing was cultivated. She has studied voice privately for over thirteen years. Her past performance experience includes operas and opera scenes performed in her schooling and at the Detroit Opera House, solo oratorio work with full orchestra, yearly recitals, and independent event singing opportunities.

Kate and her husband, Matt, moved to Colorado in the summer of 2010.
