Kate came to Fleet Feet in 2014 from Lululemon Athletica, where she started in retail management in 2007. As a retail operations education manager, Kate now helps bolster Fleet Feet staff knowledge about running and gear.

When she’s not teaching staff about new products, Kate loves to tend her vegetable garden, which helps her lead a healthy lifestyle of eating and exercise. Originally from Ridgewood, N.J., she now lives in Carrboro with her husband and son. They like to cook and hang out together at Weaver Street Market. She is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting, and if you’re watching TV, you may catch a rerun of Law and Order featuring Kate in the role of a dedicated reporter or co-hosting an 80s Gold infomercial with Rick Springfield.

Kate’s favorite running memory is of finishing her first half marathon with the help of a Fleet Feet training program. She says she was a proud Fleet Feet customer before she became an employee. If you’re in the office, you’ll identify Kate immediately, as she’ll be the one wearing her signature color, purple.
