Having grown up with cats and dogs her whole life, Kate has always been an avid animal lover. When she was younger, she would read about and obsess over the various types of cat and dog breeds. She is currently a cat mom to her calico cat named Annie. Outside of Equipaws, Kate is currently a first-year graduate student at the University of Miami, studying mental health counseling in hopes of becoming a middle school counselor. Kate’s hobbies include writing, cooking, sailing, camping, hiking, playing the piano, playing tennis, and attending workout classes at her school’s wellness center such as Zumba, cycling, yoga, and meditation. Kate decided to join Equipaws because what’s not to love about being around animals and getting exercise at the same time!?
