Kate grew up in East Aurora, NY. She currently lives in Orchard Park with her husband and daughter.
She graduated from D’Youville College in 2021 with a degree in Occupational Therapy and then completed her certification in Lymphedema treatment shortly thereafter. She became interested in the holistic aspects of occupational therapy after 20 years of working as a pharmacy technician, and she always enjoyed patient interaction. She truly believes in functional medicine and how changing your lifestyle can improve your quality of life.
She left Buffalo in 2000 to join the Air Force, and after being away for 12 years, she was very happy to move back home to be with her family. Buffalo has improved in so many ways in that time, and one of her favorite things about Buffalo is its architecture. Outside work, she enjoys being outdoors, traveling, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
