Kate loves Ireland so much that she had to have someone else write this bio so that it wouldn’t seem too overwhelming. Kate has spent the last twenty years immersed in food, Irish politics, and the environment. A consummate eater and restaurant worker (FOH), Kate has been known to frown when she eats something she likes a lot. It’s confusing at first yet endearing once you know what’s going on. Both sides of her family hail from Ireland (Tullamore & Belfast), and she has traveled extensively throughout the country. Kate’s lifelong commitment to environmental justice and sustainability is apparent in her educational background as well as her focus on seeing and learning about all of the incredible things that are happening in this area in Ireland.
