Kate has always had an affinity for paper, books, stationary, wallpaper, paper snowflakes, you name it – these things inspire her. Her dream was to design magazines, so she attended the University of Missouri for a Bachelors of Journalism in Magazine Design. There, she learned how to take ingredients – great writing, illustration and photography – and bake them into a single, attention grabbing piece. At Hallmark, Kate works in much the same way when she’s designing greetings or making sure other designers’ cards have the right ingredients to bake just right.
Away from work, you’ll find Kate walking, cooking or crafting with her husband, two young daughters and their Westie.
