Kate is a transformative educator who has designed and directed global service-learning programs from Morocco to Mexico. Her initial foray into the field of cross cultural exchange (where she committed countless faux pas) was as an environmental volunteer with the Peace Corps in the Atlas Mountains. She returned to the US to get her Masters in International Education and then went on to establish EcuaExplora, a volunteer, intern and study abroad organization dedicated to sustainable service projects across Ecuador. After ten years of adventure abroad, she is now exploring amateur homesteading in western Massachusetts and dedicates any spare time to reflective curriculum design.
Her passion is to encourage people to engage in critical thinking about themselves and the world they inhabit in a mindful manner. She strives to create reflective activities that support life-long learners to see how we make meaning of the world, raise awareness of our pre-existing perspectives, and arrive at more discriminate and conscious definitions of our beliefs and universal identity.
