Kate ran her first race when she was in fourth grade. Now an adult, she writes about running for the Fleet Feet blog and helps create videos for the Fleet Feet brand. But there was plenty of running in between: Kate was the South Carolina high school state champion in the 1600m and 3200m and ran collegiately at Mars Hill University before settling into adult life.

As the content production coordinator, Kate directs photo and video shoots, writes articles and sings pop songs on conference calls.

Now, she lives with her husband in Asheville, North Carolina, where she drinks coffee and runs for the Asheville Running Collective.
