Kate was born and raised in Washington, Missouri. In her teen years Kate found the life changing intervention she needed when she walked through the doors of Teen Challenge as a student. After completion of the program and internship training Kate joined the CGA team in 2008. Kate is an alumni of Liberty University with a degree in psychology. She is also a Board Certified Biblical Counselor through American Association of Christian Counselors. Kate knows without a doubt that God had called her to work with adolescent girls. Having completed the Teen Challenge program herself, Kate understands the growing process that has to take place in our students. Understanding and compassionate towards each student, she knows when to listen and when to give direction. Kate says, “I don’t want to keep all that I have learned to myself, I know this program and most importantly, I know how God changes lives.” Kate enjoys reading, relaxing, taking walks and spending time with her friends during her free time.
