About Kate

A North Carolina native, I have lived in France, Washington DC, Malawi, Africa, South Carolina, and am now based in San Jose, California.  After graduating from Davidson College, a top-ten liberal arts college, with Honors in History, I began my career working in advocacy and communications for the International Rescue Committee.

Three years later, my husband and I moved to Malawi, Africa and I embarked on a freelance writing career.  Published internationally in travel and lifestyle magazines, blogs, and newspapers, I specialize in interviews, research, and synthesizing complex information to make it accessible and entertaining.

Throughout my career, I have developed website content, consulted with small non-profits to strengthen communications and fundraising, created successful eNewsletters, and written a well-read travel blog.  I have composed compelling real-life stories that inspire support of an orphanage in Africa and recently arrived refugees in America, been published in print and on-line magazines, and developed a specialty in long form content writing.

I work closely with clients, from inception to delivery, ensuring that the final product speaks directly to the target audience.  I believe that non-fiction writing can be creative, engaging, and most importantly, powerful.

When not writing, I love to travel, eat cupcakes, tour historic homes, visit vineyards, and go fishing.  My husband and I are enjoying life back in the United States with our two sons, Malcolm and Henry, and our new home in California.
