Kate is an Eastern Shore native, raised in the Salisbury area. She first began working with computers at the age of seven, when her father brought home a discarded Apple II. It was love at first byte. In her spare time she enjoys hiking and camping with her husband and two daughters, as well as heading to the beach whenever possible. She is also active in local theatre, as well as volunteering with her daughter’s Girl Scout troop.

Kate joined Tezla in 2015 and brings with her experience from several industries including healthcare, journalism and IT.
