Kate has previously worked in several capacities as an urban planner and educator, consulting on community-engagement projects, connecting with NYC youth as an environmental educator, and building gardens with a design/build firm. Kate currently organizes with the APA‑NYM (American Planning Association – New York Metro) Diversity Committee, where she engages young people in immersive workshops tackling urban-planning issues.
