About Kate

Hometown: Waterloo, Iowa 
Favorite ISU tradition: Hilton Magic
Favorite food: Brunch
What I like about my job: I get the opportunity to write about something I love: my alma mater.
In my spare time, I like to: read, cook, entertain, kayak, listen to podcasts, explore historic homes, practice yoga, volunteer, and follow college sports (especially ISU!)
Something unique that most people don't know about me: I have the "Dr. Seuss gene." I once won a statewide poetry contest for a goofy rhyming poem I wrote about pizza, and I have written several light-hearted rhyming stories, poems, and greeting cards over the years.
